Rethinking Life and Death: The Collapse of Our Traditional Ethics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The new commandments according to Rethinking Life and Death.

--If you must take human life, take responsibility for the consequences of your decisions.

--All human life is not of equal worth; treat beings in accordance to the ethical situation at hand.

--Respect a person's desire to live or die.

A profound and provocative work, Rethinking Life and Death, in the tradition of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, examines the ethical dilemmas that confront us as we near the twenty-first century.

Book News Annotation:

Thirty-eight essays collected from the 1994 and 1995 issues of Social Work, Health & Social Work, Social Work in Education, and Social Work Research address topics in multicultural human services practices. The authors examine law and policy, differences among ethnic and cultural groups, education in culturally diverse settings, and health care and service delivery among Asian, Latino, African American, and European communities.
