Gifford Lectures #2001: Autonomy and Trust in Bioethics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Onora O'Neill suggests that the conceptions of individual autonomy (so widely relied on in bioethics) are philosophically and ethically inadequate; they undermine rather than support relationships based on trust. Her arguments are illustrated with issues raised by such practices as the use of genetic information by the police, research using human tissues, new reproductive technologies, and media practices for reporting on medicine, science and technology. The study appeals to a wide range of readers in ethics, bioethics and related disciplines.

Review:

"This book provides an excellent analysis of misguided understandings of autonomy and trust. Recommended. All levels." Choice
