In this title, drawing on insights from Continental, Feminist and Religious thought, an international team of leading scholars explore alternative approaches to medical ethics. Exploring alternative approaches to medical ethics emerging from the latest research in a broad range of philosophical disciplines and traditions, "Reconceiving Medical Ethics" brings together an international team of leading scholars to explore some of the most important topics in the field. Drawing on insights from Continental, Feminist and Religious thought that are often neglected in discussions of the field, the book takes as its focus a philosophical exploration of the doctor-patient relationship that lies at the heart of any consideration of medical ethics. From this starting point the book goes on to consider such important subjects as attitudes to the body, informed consent, paternalism and the role of the law in medicine. Including discussion of case studies in each chapter, "Reconceiving Medical Ethics" opens up new avenues for discussion of this crucial topic in practical ethics today. "Continuum Studies in Philosophy" presents cutting-edge scholarship in all the major areas of research and study. The wholly original arguments, perspectives and research findings in titles in this series make it an important and stimulating resource for students and academics from a range of disciplines across the humanities and social sciences.
