This book is designed for the biomedical ethics course as a core introduction to biomedical issues in the context of ethical theory. Each chapter unfolds timely, paradigm case examples—many of which have never before been explored in a bioethics text—and presents these topics amidst discussion of their key ethical issues. This short volume complements Pence’s popular Classic Cases in Medical Ethics: Accounts of the Cases that have Shaped Medical Ethics, Fourth Edition (ISBN 0-07-282935-4), and Classic Works in Medical Ethics: Core Philosophical Readings (ISBN 0-07-038115-1).
