'The Body in Bioethics is an eloquent and essential argument for taking the reality of human embodiment seriously rather than treating the corporeal body as a mere container for the mind. Alastair Campbell melds a subtle understanding of philosophy with abundant experience as teacher, scholar, and public intellectual to challenge regnant ideas about the body as property, tissue donation, and trade in human organs among other controversial issues. Rich with philosophical insights and practical wisdom, The Body in Bioethics will enlighten all who read it.'
Dr Thomas Murray, President and CEO of The Hastings Centre, New York, USA
'In this elegantly written work, Alastair Campbell makes a powerful case for the resurrection of respect for the human body in bioethics. Swimming against the tide of much of current bioethical debates, Professor Campbell draws both on his distinguished record in moral philosophy and his recent practical engagement with the Retained Organs Commission and the Ethics and Governance Council of UK Biobank. The Body in Bioethics ought to prompt all its readers to reflect again on the centrality of those bodies we inhabit.'
Professor Margaret Brazier, Professor in Law at the University of Manchester and Co-Director of the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy
