Abstract

Covering the main methods for analyzing ethical problems in modern medicine, Anneke Lucassen, a clinician, begins by presenting an ethically challenging genetics case drawn from her clinical experience. It is then analysed from different theoretical points of view. Each ethicist takes a particular approach, illustrating it in action and giving the reader a basic grounding in its central elements. Each chapter can be read on its own, but comparison between them gives the reader a sense of to what extent methodology in medical ethics matters, and how different theoretical starting points can lead to different practical conclusions. At the end, Lucassen offers a clinician's response to the various ethical methods described.
