The Blackwell Guide to Medical Ethics
(Blackwell Publishing: 2007)
The Blackwell Guide to Medical Ethics, a guide to the complex literature written on the increasingly dense topic of ethics in relation to the new technologies of medicine, examines the key ethical issues and debates which have resulted from the rapid advances in biomedical technology; brings together leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including philosophy, medicine, theology and law, to discuss these issues; and tackles such topics as ending life, patient choice, selling body parts, resourcing, and confidentiality. The guide has a coherent structure that differentiates between the decisions of individuals and those of social policy. Rosamond Rhodes is an adjunct associate professor of philosophy at the Graduate Center as well as a professor of medical education and director of bioethics education at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
