Overcoming Taboos, Myths, and Dogmas in Bioethics
Date:12/15/2008

ground, he postulates that argument based on agreed norms can break the deadlock created by over-hyped language and untested dogma. What is needed, he argues, is 'a well-reasoned, pragmatic approach to controversies in bioethics that avoids reliance on taboos, myths and dogma, whether these result from religious or ideological beliefs'. These are fighting words, and Lindsay throws a number of powerful punches."

After describing in detail the proper way to approach and resolve a dispute in bioethics, Lindsay proceeds to analyze several different cutting-edge issues. "By carefully examining and dissecting claims made by many policy makers and ethicists on topics such as assistance in dying, genetic engineering, and embryonic stem cell research, Lindsay shows that all too often these claims are based on instinctive reactions, beliefs that lack factual support, and religious or ideological dogma," notes Nature Through his insightful analysis, Lindsay demonstrates how to achieve pragmatic, progressive solutions to these controversies.

An antidote for misguided thinking, FUTURE BIOETHICS illuminates the way forward to bioethics policies appropriate for the twenty-first century.
