Overview

Modern science and medicine have ushered in a century of amazing discovery and tough choices. In this authoritative and impassioned book, Glenn McGee and other leading writers in American philosophy and medicine offer a new theory of bioethics using the uniquely American approach to ethics known as pragmatism. In eighteen clear and compelling essays, Pragmatic Bioethics addresses some of the newest questions in medicine, including human cloning, genetic testing, and human enhancement. These essays also struggle in a new way with perennial issues in biomedicine, including care for the poor and the aging.

Scholars in medicine and philosophy will find the pragmatic argument refreshing and challenging. But Pragmatic Bioethics is also a clear and comprehensive new introduction to bioethics, appropriate for undergraduates, graduate students, clinicians, and scientists-in-training.
