Bioethics: Principles, Issues, and Cases (3rd Edition) – eBook PDF

Bioethics: Principles, Issues, and Cases, 3rd Edition, (PDF) explores the philosophical, social, medical, and legal aspects of key bioethical issues. Opening with a detailed introduction to ethics, bioethics, and moral reasoning, it then encompasses influential moral theories and the criteria for evaluating them. Incorporating eighty-nine readings–twelve of them new to this edition–several classic bioethical cases, and plentiful pedagogical tools, this text addresses the most controversial and provocative topics in bioethics.


“Applying Major Theories” sections at the end of every chapter help students relate theories to the issues

“Key Terms” are boxed off and boldfaced within the text and then described in a glossary at the back of the ebook

“Classic Case Files” define landmark cases that shaped the debate, while news-making “Cases for Evaluation” motivate students to form their own opinions

Numerous text boxes: “In-Depth” boxes contain additional material, analyses or illustrations, much of it “ripped from the headlines”; “Fact File” boxes offer statistics on the social, scientific and medical facets of a chapter’s topic; and “Legal Brief” boxes condense important court rulings and the status of major legislation.


This is the ebook ‘to beat’ for a general undergraduate course in medical ethics. Every chapter has a concise and engaging summary and the cases help produce good initial discussions.” — David Schwan, Bowling Green State University

Bioethics strikes a good balance between real-life classic cases, ethical theory, and relevant policy documents. This makes it appropriate for students from a wide range of disciplines, from philosophy and public health to health sciences and medicine. I would recommend this ebook enthusiastically to all my colleagues who teach introductory bioethics courses. I would emphasize its comprehensiveness, its user-friendly format and resources, and its helpful balance between theory and applications, and between primary texts and case studies.” — Assya Pascalev, Howard University
