Like New in Like New jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. This volume explores Confucian views regarding the human body, health, virtue, suffering, suicide, euthanasia, "human drugs", human experimentation, and justice in health care distribution. These views are rooted in Confucian metaphysical, cosmological, and moral convictions, which stand in contrast to modern Western liberal perspectives in a number of important ways. In the contemporary world, a wide variety of different moral traditions flourish; there is real moral diversity. Given this circumstance, difficult and even painful ethical conflicts often occur between the East and the West with regard to the issues of life, birth, reproduction, and death. The essays in this volume analyse the ways in which Confucian bioethics can clarify important moral concepts, provide arguments, and offer ethical guidance.N.B.
