190250100 –Bioethics: Principles, Issues, and Cases, Third Edition, explores the philosophical, medical, social, and legal aspects of key bioethical issues. Opening with a thorough introduction to ethics, bioethics, and moral reasoning, it then covers influential moral theories and the criteria for evaluating them. Integrating eighty-nine readings–twelve of them new to this edition–numerous classic bioethical cases, and abundant pedagogical tools, this text addresses the most provocative and controversial topics in bioethics.

PEDAGOGICAL FEATURES:

“Classic Case Files” describe landmark cases that shaped the debate, while news-making “Cases for Evaluation” encourage students to form their own opinions

Various text boxes: “In Depth” boxes contain additional material, illustrations, or analyses, much of it “ripped from the headlines”; “Fact File” boxes provide statistics on the social, medical, and scientific facets of a chapter’s topic; and “Legal Brief” boxes summarize important court rulings and the status of major legislation

“Key Terms” are boldfaced and boxed off within the text and then defined in a glossary at the back of the book

“Applying Major Theories” sections at the end of each chapter help students relate theories to the issues
