“The contributors are all experts in the field, and this shows in the breadth and quality of information provided… the Companion is still the best secondary source in navigating the complicated and ever-evolving field of bioethics.” — Metapsychology, December 2010
“The student or reader who is interested in bioethics and wants to get a picture about the key questions on this subject will find excellent answers in this exquisite publication edited by Peter Singer and Helga Kuhse. The aim of the editors was to give as complete a picture as possible, selecting very carefully from the theme of bioethics; they achieved in their goal. This success was gained because the authors of the book are acknowledged and respected teachers and scientists of bioethics, and they used their experience to give the reader an insight into their subject material.” — Nursing Ethics
“The Second Edition of A Companion to Bioethics, edited by ethicists Singer (Princeton) and Kuhse (Monash Univ., Australia), should be… a standard one-volume reference work in the field of bioethics. The ebook’s helpful summary of the field’s major debates makes it especially helpful for smaller collections that do not gain many of the increasingly specialized monographs on narrow bioethical issues. The ebook also features a wide range of authors– from such established scholars as James Childress and the late R. M. Hare to new voices in the field, like Eric Gregory, who contributes an essay titled “Religion and Bioethics.” The essays in the collection are accessible to many levels of readers; those unacquainted with these debates will find the essays helpful introductions, and specialists will find new readings of classic works or new perspectives on old debates. This comprehensive, important, and superbly edited reference work will prove useful to scholars and students at all levels and a worthwhile addition to all collections.” — CHOICE, July 2010
