The Rowman & Littlefield Handbook of Bioethics
This bioethics handbook offers concise, up-to-date, and easy to read chapters on a broad range of bioethical topics in the following categories: foundational concepts, theory and method, healthcare ethics, research ethics, public health, technology, and the environment.
The volume provides a snapshot of current bioethics, taking into account current affairs and emerging new topics. Each chapter acknowledges and critically breaks down the historical developments of the subject and the most authoritative existing literature on respective topics, providing accessible and up-to-date philosophical analysis. As such, the chapters are designed to be attractive as primary or supplementary teaching material for university classes of the philosophical or bioethical variety, with clear demarcations and indicators for key terms, ideas, and arguments that should also facilitate productive note-taking and points for critical discussion for students. The handbook also serves as a one-stop starting resource for multi- and interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners who engage with bioethics in their work.
