Field of medicine: Medical ethics.
Format: Hardcover book.
Audience: The book will be most interesting and accessible to bioethicists and students of bioethics. It can be read with profit by professionals with little background in moral philosophy, but the rigorous and sustained philosophical argumentation may be slow going for some.
Purpose: To illustrate the grounding of bioethics in our common morality by making its rules, ideals, and methods of reasoning explicit and then relating them to the fundamental concepts and issues of medical ethics.
