about

Bioethical Prescriptions collects F.M. Kamm's articles on bioethics, which have appeared over the last twenty-five years and which have made her among the most influential philosophers in this area. Kamm is known for her intricate, sophisticated, and painstaking philosophical analyses ofmoral problems generally and of bioethical issues in particular. This volume showcases these articles - revised to eliminate redundancies - as parts of a coherent whole. A substantive introduction identifies important themes than run through the articles. Section headings include Death and Dying;Early Life (on conception and use of embryos, abortion, and childhood); Genetics and Other Enhancements (on cloning and other genetic technologies); Allocating Scarce Resources; and Methodology (on the relation of moral theory and practical ethics).

Editorial Reviews

"F.M. Kamm's latest book has something in common with good psychological thrillers: plenty of unexpected twists and turns. They surprise you at first, but in the end you appreciate the author's design...The essays in BP grip the reader more firmly because the discussion is usually anchored ina concrete bioethical issue and each essay stands on its own...You have to read the book. It is profoundly thought-provoking - as painstakingly careful a work of applied ethics as I have found...I invite readers to discover for themselves the extraordinary twists and turns of BioethicalPrescriptions." --Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal
