From the Publisher
Editors Note A twenty-first century science will not easily answer to an eighteenth century philosophy. Abortion, euthanasia, genetic engineering, and organ transplantation all raise seemingly irresolvable issues. Koch offers new approaches--public and inclusive--that may resolve them. After explaining the limits of principled ethics, he offers new approaches and then uses them to examine two critical issues: how do we decide who will receive organ transplants and "the problem of Baby K," the care or non-care of "brain stem babies." This is a unique, innovative argument that challenges traditional bioethics' approach to complex problems.
