The Foundations of BioethicsThis new, thoroughly recast Second Edition has been acclaimed as “the most important book written since the beginning of that strange project called bioethics” (Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University).

The law has therefore had two conflicting impacts on medical ethics: the positive effect of eroding paternalism and replacing it with a patient-centered ethic; and the negative effect of encouraging phys…

The Triple Helix: The Soul of BioethicsLisa Bellantoni argues that contemporary bioethics divides into two logically incommensurable positions: a cult of rights, which identifies the worth of human life with our autonomy, and a cult of life, which identifies human worth with the possession of a soul, and thereby, of human dignity….
