This up-to-date and highly respected collection offers readers a rich spectrum of pro and con discussion. Contemporary Issues in Bioethics includes readings by many of the world's top scholars in the medical ethics field, in addition to key court cases. Tom L. Beauchamp and LeRoy Walters begin with a reviewer-praised overview of ethical theory that includes feminist theory, virtue ethics, and care theory now updated to reflect the most contemporary ethical theories and debates about method in bioethics. Beauchamp and Walters preface each chapter with an introduction that places the essays in context and surveys the chapter's major arguments and points of view. In a new feature for this edition, biographical sketches introduce the reader to each author. Current bibliographies at the ends of chapters identify the most important recent literature and suggest ways to pursue topics in greater depth.
