Respect and Care in Medical Ethics, Volume 50
David H. Smith
University Press of America, 1984 - Medical - 327 pages
This collection of essays offers an inquiry into the discussion of renewed concern with bioethics. The power to start, alter, or extend life has developed recently to such a point that recent debate in bioethics has been organized into three "schools": groups concerned with political questions, i.e., who should make a decision; groups concerned with the substantive question of what should we do; and the philosophical professionals who write about specific problems in medical ethics, enriching and sharpening discussions. Co-published with the Poynter Center on Ethics and American Institutions, Indiana University.
