Description - Bioethics by Helga Kuhse
This volume is a definitive, high-quality, one-volume collection of key primary texts for the study of bioethics. The second edition includes updated selections, expanded sections and introductions from the editors, and a new web site [note: can we do this? It would contain references to on-line resources and would afford the ability to post links to relevant topics "in the news"]. The volume will be of great value not only to philosophers, students of philosophy and moral theologians, but also to doctors and nurses, sociologists and layers, as contains much that will interest the general reader.
