Overview

This work is an introductory treatment of issues and options in social and bioethics which center on the end of life. The purpose of Moreland and Geisler's book is to offer a beginning survey of these issues to someone unfamiliar with philosophy. The book simplifies and summarizes various end-of-life topics without being simplistic or caricaturing different viewpoints, even though the authors' own viewpoint is made perfectly clear. The major intention of this book is to make the reader think more clearly and deeply about the important issues discussed between its covers.
