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.
"This book provides the first extensive look at how the challenges encountered in the clinical research and policy environments can be framed in a systematic way using a philosophical approach that is sure to inspire debate and discussion for some time. This is precisely what a pragmatic approach to bioethics ought to be doing." Eric M. Meslin, Director, Indiana University

"Pragmatic ethics is our best hope to provide morally satisfying answers to the complex questions of a contingent and changing world. This volume approaches medicine's major moral dilemmas in a way that can help citizens work with policymakers to develop medical systems,
structures, guidelines, and codes that serve the interests of most of the people most of the time.
What an accomplishment!" Rosemarie Tong, Distinguished Professor of Health Care Ethics, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
