Abstract

In his important textbook, the author, assuming no prior philosophical knowledge, covers the controversial issues of euthanasia, abortion and experimentation on humans and animals, as well as looking at the right to self-determination and the limits of confidentiality. Each topic is lucidly introduced and then examined in more depth through extracts taken from such major ethical thinkers as James Rachels, Sissela Bok and Peter Singer. Pertinent case studies bring the subjects to life, and there are exercises for individual or group work, and a well organised bibliography at the end of each chapter, for those who researching particular area more deeply. This excellent introduction is for anyone with an interest in human well-being, and provides vital theoretical tools for those facing real medical dilemmas. Moreover it is an essential text for the ethical content in the training of medical students, nurses and other health professionals.

Abstract

This casebook collects 64 case studies, each of which raises an important and difficult ethical issue connected with planning, reviewing, or conducting health-related research. The book’s purpose is to contribute to thoughtful analysis of these issues by researchers and members of research ethics committees (RECs, known in some places as ethical review committees or institutional review boards), particularly those involved with studies that are conducted or sponsored internationally.

Abstract

Western medicine - especially in contrast with no-Western traditions of medical practice - is widely thought of as a coherent and unified field in which beliefs, definitions, and judgments are shared. Marc Berg and Annemarie Mol debunk this myth with an interdisciplinary and intercultural collection of essays that reveals the significantly varied ways practitioners of 'conventional' Western medicine handle bodies, study test results, configure statistics, and converse with patients. Combining theoretical work with interviews and direct observation of the activities and interactions of doctors, nurses, technicians, and patients, the contributors to this volume provide comparative studies of specific cases. Individual chapters explore topics such as the contested domain of fetal surgery in a California hospital, the construction of gender identity before transsexual surgery in Germany, and differences in the treatment and definition of pain by two clinics in France. 'Differences in Medicine' advances earlier studies on medicine's social diversity and regional variations to expose significant differences in the presumptions and decisions that affect patients' lives, and marks a dramatic development in both the study of medicine and in science studies generally. Revealing the ways in which the bodies and lives of people are constructed as medical objects by practitioners, technologies, and textbooks, this collection calls for and initiates new, more textured theories of the body and investigations in medicine and the practice of science. Marc Berg is a researcher at the School of Health Sciences at Maastricht University. Annemarie Mol is Professor of Political Philosophy at the University of Twente.
