Justice and Justification by Norman Daniels

Book Description

We all have beliefs, even strong convictions, about what is just and fair in our social arrangements. How should these beliefs and the theories of justice that incorporate them guide our thinking about practical matters of justice? This wide-ranging collection of essays by one of the foremost medical ethicists in the USA explores the claim that justification in ethics, whether of matters of theory or practice, involves achieving coherence between our moral and non-moral beliefs. Amongst the practical issues addressed in the volume are the design of health-care institutions, the distribution of goods between the old and the young, and fairness in hiring and firing. In combining ethical theory and practical ethics this volume will prove especially valuable to philosophers concerned with ethics and applied ethics, political theorists, bioethicists, and others involved in the study of public policy.

Identified versus Statistical Lives by Norman Daniels Identified versus Statistical Lives, Hardback (April 2015)

Human beings show a greater inclination to assist persons identified as being at high risk of great harm than to assist persons who will suffer similar harm but are not identified as yet. Does this effect constitute a virtue, or a vice? What explains the effect? What are the implications for policy?

Setting Limits Fairly by Norman Daniels Setting Limits Fairly, Paperback (March 2008)

The central idea behind this book is that we lack consensus on principles for allocating medical resources, and in the absence of such a consensus we must develop and rely on a fair decision-making process for setting limits on health care. The authors provide an analysis of the current situation, reviewing typical solutions, before describing their own approach.
