Critical Interventions in the Ethics of Healthcare (Medical Law and Ethics) (Hardcover)6th April 2009
"Critical Interventions in the Ethics of Healthcare" argues that
traditional modes of bioethics are proving incommensurable with
burgeoning biotechnologies and consequently, emerging subjectivities.
Drawn from diverse disciplines, this volume works toward a new mode of discourse in bioethics, offering a critique of the current norms and constraints under which Western healthcare operates.
The contributions imagine new, less paternalistic, terms by which bioethics might proceed - terms that do not resort to exclusively Western models of liberal humanism or to the logic of neoliberal economies. It is argued that in this way, we can begin to develop an ethical vocabulary that does justice to the challenges of our age.
Bringing together theorists, practitioners and clinicians to present a wide variety of related disciplinary concerns and perspectives on bioethics, this volume challenges the underlying assumptions that continue to hold sway in the ethics of medicine and health sciences.
