Description - Annals of Bioethics: Regional Perspectives in Bioethics by Mark J. Cherry
Bioethics cannot be thought of as a primarily North American and Western European academic discipline. Bioethics has become a truly international phenomenon, moving beyond academic discussions into politics, social policy and law.;"Regional Perspectives in Bioethics" illustrates the ways in which the national and international political landscape encompasses persons from diverse and often fragmented moral communities with widely varying moral intuitions, premises, evaluations and commitments. It explores, documents and critically assesses the moral, cultural and religious viewpoints representing the various regions of the world, from mainland China and Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, India and East Asia more generally, to Europe, the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand, to South America and North America.;"Regional Perspectives in Bioethics" critically portrays the often widely varying bioethical perspectives reflected throughout the international community's regions, religions, laws and policies.
Here one appreciates the significant plurality of fundamentally different, incompatible, and often mutually antagonistic moral visions and moral rationalities, within which complex bioethical issues are addressed.;"Regional Perspectives in Bioethics" is the first of three foundational volumes, including "Religious Perspectives in Bioethics" and "Legal Perspectives in Bioethics", which serve as precursors to the "Annals of Bioethics" serial.
