Part III examines end-of-life issues by focusing on the American context with healthcare practitioners as privileged interlocutors. The revisions, expansions, and updates concern mostly part III, where new chapters were added to discuss research ethics, organizational ethics, specific issues in genetics, and global bioethics. The division into three parts has didactical and pedagogical advantages. Students and practitioners will benefit from such an ordered approach. At the same time, readers might experience a sense of dissociation, maybe even frustration, as if it were up to them to create a greater synthetic unity between foundational approaches, methodologies, and ways to address concrete matters in health-care settings.
Globally, recent scholarly publications in theological bioethics are extensive. It is not surprising, therefore, that this volume suffers from noticeable omissions: 1 missing authors e. Vogt on end-of-life issues ; 2 insightful contributions of colleagues already quoted e.
Keenan's essays on genetics ; and 3 scholarly publications from Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Moreover, while the authors consider global health and environmental ethics integral to today's health-care ethics , a more extensive discussion could have focused on promoting public health and primary care in developing countries.
Finally, virtue ethics could have received greater attention because of its relevance in health-care practices and in ethical discourse where it bridges the gaps between theological foundations, method, and application. Feedback For webmasters.
