It then outlines the major trends that will in practice influence the direction of sustainable development into the next century.

Philosophical Foundations of Modern Medicine by Keekok Lee Philosophical Foundations of Modern Medicine, Hardback (December 2011)

An exploration of the philosophical foundation of modern medicine which explains why such a medicine possesses the characteristics it does and where precisely its strengths as well as its weaknesses lie. Written in plain English, it should be accessible to anyone who is intellectually curious, lay persons and medical professionals alike.

Zoos by Keekok Lee Zoos, Hardback (November 2005)

This ontological treatment marks an approach to looking at animals in captivity. Engaging with the moral questions of zoo-keeping as well as the ontological, the author develops her own original hypothesis, centred around the concept of 'immuration' - defining this in contrast to domestication.

Philosophy and Revolutions in Genetics by Keekok Lee Philosophy and Revolutions in Genetics, Paperback (November 2002)

This ground-breaking book explores the issues raised in the modern fields of genetic research and biotechnology. As philosophers try to make sense of the issues, the author primarily examines these from an ontological rather than an ethical/political standpoint.
