Clashing Views on Controversial Bioethical Issues. Third Edition. Taking Sides.
Levine, Carol, Ed.
The student who has thoughtfully examined opposing viewpoints on an issue should perceive what other position can be occupied on that issue and should learn to carefully consider antithetical viewpoints. The development of this critical approach is the purpose of this book. An introduction, postscript summary, and two articles or published excerpts which delineate the pros and cons of each issue are provided. In this volume, 20 controversial issues are discussed. These cover: (1) reproductive choices; (2) decisions about death; (3) the doctor-patient relationship; (4) experimentation with humans and animals; and (5) public policy and bioethics. (CW)
