"There has been an enormous gap in the literature of bioethics – theory. In the rush to resolve contentious moral questions, inadequate attention has been paid to the tools used to achieve insight and answers. This important volume goes a long way toward providing what has been too little in evidence in the field. The Guide
gives readers clear expositions of the normative rationales that leading thinkers in bioethics use to support their positions on a wide variety of timely issues. It is an invaluable toolkit for all interested in bioethics."

"This excellent collection of specially written papers is organized in an innovative way that seeks to clear up a lot of confusion that comes from people talking past each other."
