Book Description :
Twenty-four American specialists provide descriptions of techniques, critiques, and notes on resources and training on a variety of methods used in medical ethics. Individual chapters are devoted to each of 11 methods: philosophy, religion and theology, professional codes, legal methods, casuistry, history, qualitative, ethnographic, quantitative surveys, experimental methods, and economics and decision science. Discussion includes how these methods can relate to one another and how to assess the quality of scholarship in medical ethics in connection with such issues as physician-assisted suicide, euthanasia, and medical genetics. For scholars, teachers, editors and students in all disciplines contributing to the field. c. Book News Inc.
