The first IVF conceived birth in 1978 resulted in a significant growth of third party reproductive options which continue to raise ethical, legal, and psychological questions. Third party reproduction procedures can involve as many as five people: sperm donor, egg donor, gestational carrier, and intended parents. Third-Party Reproduction: A Comprehensive Guide utilizes experts in the field to address the medical, psychological, ethical and legal aspects of sperm donation, egg donation, embryo donation, and the use of gestational carriers. In addition, there are chapters on the medical and ethical aspects of posthumous reproduction, religious aspects of third party reproduction, and how to avoid pitfalls of third party reproduction. Aimed at physicians, trainees, psychologists, nurses, and social workers whose practices may include patients considering third party reproduction, the intent of this book is to provide a comprehensive and practical overview of the many aspects of third party reproduction to help all those involved to better understand them. Patients considering third party reproduction may also find value in this book.

Precio: 40€


In a world of managerial discourse, measurement and control, leaders and workers alike cry out for inspiration and innovation in a way that respects their humanity. Spirituality as the search for meaning and a healthy work/life balance is therefore no longer an esoteric phenomenon but part of mainstream leadership. In this volume, two business leaders share how they have seen the need for spiritual leadership develop at their places of work. A psychologist and a philosopher explain what spirituality is, and how it works in the practice of business leadership. Three theologians frame spirituality by demonstrating the benefits of Ignatian spirituality, by comparing spiritual leadership with Christ’s offices as king, prophet and priest, and by reflecting on the human tendency to glorify the leader and how destructive tendencies can be avoided in spiritual leadership. This maiden volume of the series “Christian Perspectives on Leadership and Social Ethics,” is published by the Institute of Leadership and Ethics, of the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit in Leuven (Belgium) and serves leaders to face increasing pressure for innovation in today’s fast changing world.

La defensa ecologista de un desarrollo sostenible parte de la premisa de que el crecimiento no puede ser ilimitado, apuntando a una distinción clara y tajante entre crecimiento y desarrollo, y denunciando la confusión que suele darse entre bienestar e incremento cuanti tativo de bienes. Optar por el desarrollo frente al crecimiento exige un cambio drástico en las pautas de producción, distribución y consumo, y excluye la posibilidad de asignarle un valor económico al daño ambiental. Exige, en definitiva, una transformación sustancial de nuestro modelo político y económico, frente a la que el discurso de los derechos humanos no puede quedar inmune.
En este volumen ofrecemos ciertas pistas para propiciar esta transformación, en primer lugar, utilizando la plataforma ecologista para conceptualizar el derecho al medio ambiente y el desarrollo; abriendo después el catálogo de los derechos humanos a las nuevos exigencias; y, finalmente, conectándolos, sin afán de exhaustividad, con algunos de los cuestiones más acuciantes de nuestro tiempo. - See more at: http://www.tirant.com/editorial/ebook/derechos-emergentes-desarrollo-y-medio-ambiente-jaume-saura-estapa-9788490531761#sthash.IYQNdGeO.dpuf

El debate social (o "el tema de") sobre la eutanasia se mueve en gran medida a merced de las mareas que empujan los medios de comunicacion rozando el sensacionalismo o los estereotipos. Ante ello, los profesionales del Trabajo Social tenemos la obligacion de fundamentar nuestra postura profesional partiendo del conocimiento y analisis de este debate, indagando que esta ocurriendo tanto en Espana como a nivel internacional con la eutanasia. Este libro es el resultado de un riguroso proceso de investigacion bibliografica que incluye un recorrido historico, etico y conceptual, ademas de un cuidadoso analisis juridico politico de la eutanasia y del "derecho a morir con dignidad".



The concept of injustice

Autor: Eric Heinze
Edición: Routledge, 2014
ISBN:9780415634793
Precio: 38,55€


This book insists upon a re-thinking of Western theories of Justice. For 2500 years, philosophers have subordinated the concept of injustice to the concept of justice, as if injustice were only a secondary, derivative notion. This book summons literary classics, notably Shakespeare, to argue that injustice, not justice, should be the focus of our attention. A long line of thinkers, from Plato and Aristotle through to Kant, Hegel, Marx and Rawls, have overlooked the central problems of injustice. The book identifies two elements - unity and measurement - that are constantly assumed to be essential to justice. It shows how, in landmark literary classics, it is precisely those two elements that end up generating injustice. Western justice theory, it is concluded, cannot advance until it takes a new approach to the concept and the realities of injustice.

The diversity of family models presents great challenges for contemporary Christians, from ethical point of view, as well as the spiritual level and the living together. Family patterns are in continuous mutation which is a potential source of conflict. Many scholars, including sociologists, theologians, psychologists, and philosophers take this subject to heart. They meet to discuss a number of issues concerning the family: the forms of contemporary family, the future of the family or families, their challenges and needs.
This book is to promote conversation about the family between secular perspectives and Christian approaches. In three parts, this volume deals with current research in the field of human sciences. The first part discusses the structural dimension, treating the impact of attachment theory, analyzing the investigations concerning family separation and taking into consideration contemporary parenting ethical issues. In the second part, relevant ethical, pastoral and psychological issues related to contemporary tensions in the field are processed. As for the third part, it seeks the indices, the spiritual and therapeutic pathways in the heart of the great diversity that is lived.

Los temas de este libro corresponden a Lecciones impartidas a los alumnos de primero de Derecho en la Universidad de Villanueva. Responden a la idea de que un buen modo de adentrarse en la ciencia jurídica. consiste en pensar juntos sobre la justicia y el Derecho.


"La justicia forma parte no sólo de la bondad, también de la belleza. Lo bello es armónico. La injusticia rompe la armonía. Reparar las heridas cuasadas a la vida compartida, constituye una de las tareas de la justicia. Vivir es relacionarse y la relación está en el núcleo de la justicia. Las buenas relaciones dependen de ella. Sin justicia, vivir se convierte en un malvivir, la paz se malogra y el amor se desvanece " (M. Ángel Torres-Dulce Lifante)

Precio: 37,98€


“Las ciencias sociales y del comportamiento necesitan con urgencia este libro. De hecho, debería ser lectura obligatoria para cualquier persona que esté estudiando seriamente los métodos o las metodologías. Es una verdadera hazaña haber reunido en un solo tomo a las figuras prominentes, los problemas difíciles y las soluciones imperfectas que plagan los varios tipos de indagación. La investigación cualitativa tenía el propósito de subsanar muchos de estos males, pero, como Packer señala contundentemente, el dualismo oculto de este enfoque de investigación ha evitado que tome conciencia de todo su potencial, lo que ha llevado a que hagamos caso omiso o malentendamos no solamente importantes modos de investigación sino vitales formas de vida. Con este agudo análisis como escenario, Packer redefine la investigación cualitativa por medio de la explicación de nuevas maneras de estudiar la vida y las formas de vida, todo con una prosa elegante, clara y accesible.”Brent D. Slife, Brigham Young University, Estados Unidos. “En este mapeo crítico de la historia de la indagación cualitativa, Martin Packer sobrevuela majestuosamente un extenso terreno epistemológico. Por medio de la disección de contradicciones dualistas, nos desafía a desarrollar un interés en el potencial radical de los enfoques posmodernos y a deleitarnos en la naturaleza emergente, co-constituida y hermenéutica del proyecto.

In mapping out the field of human rights for those studying and researching within both humanities and social science disciplines, the Handbook of Human Rights not only provides a solid foundation for the reader who wants to learn the basic parameters of the field, but also promotes new thinking and frameworks for the study of human rights in the twenty-first century. The Handbook comprises over sixty individual contributions from key figures around the world, which are grouped according to eight key areas of discussion: foundations and critiques; new frameworks for understanding human rights; world religious traditions and human rights; social, economic, group, and collective rights; critical perspectives on human rights organizations, institutions, and practices; law and human rights; narrative and aesthetic dimension of rights; geographies of rights. In its presentation and analysis of the traditional core history and topics, critical perspectives, human rights culture, and current practice, this Handbook proves a valuable resource for all students and researchers with an interest in human rights.



La asistencia:la medida de protección de la persona con discapacidad psíquica alternativa al procedi

Que los moldes de la tutela (como mecanismo de protección del incapacitado que se articula sobre la base de la representación) y la curatela (como vehículo de simple asistencia sin representación) continúan sin dar el resultado apetecido por el legislador estatal, es algo indiscutible. Demasiada rigidez y excesivo procedimentalismo conllevan una escasez irritante de medios para la protección de las personas mayores, en una época en la que la esperanza de vida se ha elevado de modo muy notable, pero sin que esa mayor esperanza conlleve necesariamente una mejora en la calidad de vida.
Esta obra trata de la asistencia, una institución no regulada en el ordenamiento estatal sino en el catalán, y que comporta que la persona que padece una disminución o deficiencia física o psíquica que tal vez no constituya causa de incapacitación, pueda solicitar al Juez que le nombre un asistente elegido por ella misma. La figura, que como se ocupa de advertir la profesora Núñez Zorrilla, no es desconocida por algunos países europeos, y es estudiada en estas páginas desde todos sus ángulos (causas, personas beneficiarias de la misma, procedimiento, contenido del mecanismo, responsabilidad civil…)...



The Ethics of Health Care Rationing: An Introduction

Precio: 39,95€


Should organ transplants be given to patients who have waited the longest, or need it most urgently, or those whose survival prospects are the best? The rationing of health care is universal and inevitable, taking place in poor and affluent countries, in publicly funded and private health care systems. Someone must budget for as well as dispense health care whilst aging populations severely stretch the availability of resources.

The Ethics of Health Care Rationing is a clear and much-needed introduction to this increasingly important topic, considering and assessing the major ethical problems and dilemmas about the allocation, scarcity and rationing of health care. Beginning with a helpful overview of why rationing is an ethical problem, the authors examine the following key topics:

What is the value of health? How can it be measured?
What does it mean that a treatment is "good value for money"?
What sort of distributive principles - utilitarian, egalitarian or prioritarian - should we rely on when thinking about health care rationing?
Does rationing health care unfairly discriminate against the elderly and people with disabilities?
Should patients be held responsible for their health? Why does the debate on responsibility for health lead to issues about socioeconomic status and social inequality?
Throughout the book, examples from the US, UK and other countries are used to illustrate the ethical issues at stake. Additional features such as chapter summaries, annotated further reading and discussion questions make this an ideal starting point for students new to the subject, not only in philosophy but also in closely related fields such as politics, health economics, public health, medicine, nursing and social work.

Issues of global justice have received increasing attention in academic philosophy in recent years but the gendered dimensions of these issues are often overlooked or treated as peripheral. This groundbreaking collection by Alison Jaggar brings gender to the centre of philosophical debates about global justice. The explorations presented here range far beyond the limited range of issues often thought to constitute feminists' concerns about global justice, such as female seclusion, genital cutting, and sex trafficking. Instead, established and emerging scholars expose the gendered and racialized aspects of transnational divisions of paid and unpaid labor, class formation, taxation, migration, mental health, the so-called resource curse, and conceptualizations of violence, honor, and consent. Jaggar's introduction explains how these and other feminist investigations of the transnational order raise deep challenges to assumptions about justice that for centuries have underpinned Western political philosophy. Taken together the pieces in this volume present a sustained philosophical engagement with gender and global justice. Gender and Global Justice provides an accessible and original perspective on this important field and looks set to reframe philosophical reflection on global justice.



Il lato oscuro dei Diritti umani:esigenze emancipatorie e logiche di dominio nella tutela giuridica

Precio: 30€


È in una dimensione chiaroscura che l´esperienza dei diritti umani si lascia comprendere. Questi infatti prendono forma da un complesso gioco di rifrazioni in cui le esigenze emancipatorie si intrecciano a logiche di dominio. Dal punto di vista fenomenologico i diritti sembrano essere attraversati da tensioni dicotomiche per cui la loro universalità non modifica (e forse consolida) il dato della loro ineffettività, la loro generalità non risolve (e forse nasconde) dinamiche discriminatorie, la loro moltiplicazione diventa momento di contrapposizione, piuttosto che di pacificazione sociale. I regimi giuridici dei diritti vengono del resto interessati anche da una trasformazione del stesso processo di produzione; ciò è dovuto al complicarsi del rapporto tra politica e giustizia, che tende allo stesso tempo ad una giurisdizionalizzazione della politca e ad una politicizzazione della giurisdizione. I profondi mutamenti in atto nel mondo contemporaneo, configurando una nuova spazialità geopolitica e un inedito pluralismo dei valori nel segno della diversità di culture, agiscono come fattori di cambiamento di senso nel discorso dei diritti umani. Le analisi contenute in questo volume si svolgono su diversi terreni disciplinari giuridici e filosofici. Partendo dall´esame diretto di alcune questioni chiave, esse evidenziano tali complessi nodi problematici e segnalano l´urgenza di una riflessione sulle possibili vie per corrispondere alla rivendicazione di giustizia (oltre che di libertà), che la domanda di diritti esprime.

El siglo XVII fue el siglo de las matemáticas, el XVIII el de las ciencia físicas y el XIX el de la biología. Nuestro siglo XX es el siglo del miedo. Se me dirá que el miedo no es una ciencia. Pero, en primer lugar, la ciencia es en cierto modo responsable de ese miedo, porque sus últimos avances teóricos la han llevado a negarse a sí misma y porque sus perfeccionamientos prácticos amenazan con destruir la Tierra. Además, si bien el miedo en sí mismo no puede ser considerado una ciencia, no hay duda de que es, sin embargo, una técnica.

Ni víctimas ni verdugos reúne una serie de artículos publicados por Albert Camus en el periódico Combat.

This book aims to deepen the student's understanding of the complex ethical challenges that businesses face in an increasingly globalized world. As the world moves towards greater interdependence, it has been demonstrated that globalization is linked to economic growth. This raises a critical question: as a key player in fostering economic growth, how does the multinational corporation function as a moral agent? Global Capitalism, Culture, and Ethics offers a sophisticated analysis of theoretical ethical issues such as universalism versus pluralism; the connection between law and morality; the validity of a corporate social agenda; and the general parameters of moral responsibilities for multinational corporations. With these foundational issues addressed, the book proceeds to analyze a number of specific controversies such as the proper scope of political activism, disinvestment, environmental sustainability, and responsible sourcing from low wage countries. The analysis of globalization is not confined to a treatment of the moral obligations of multinational corporations, but also reviews the history of global capitalism, the interdependence between governments and multinational corporations, and the beneficial and harmful effects of globalization on social welfare. Weaving together themes from economics, history, philosophy, and law, this book allows the reader to appreciate globalization from multiple perspectives. Its theoretical cogency and uncompromising clarity make it a rewarding read for students interested in issues of ethics and globalization.

Sentir la muerte hoy es un libro que habla, desde la sociología de la muerte, de la feminización del proceso de morir y de la muerte, algo que se descubre a través de la investigación cualitativa llevada a cabo en la tesis doctoral de María Asunción Bellosta Martínez. Cómo es el final de la vida para las personas moribundas y sus acompañantes, principalmente mujeres, y cómo el género se ve transformado por la propia muerte son los temas centrales de esta obra. En la viudedad, en las distintas profesiones que trabajan con la finitud, en la espiritualidad, es donde ha buscado la autora para poner en palabras una realidad que se esconde en los entresijos del gran tabú sobre la muerte, un tabú moderno, monolítico y dominante que se ve desvelado aquí de un modo fluido.

Precio: 65 $


The Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA) were designed to encourage more pediatric studies of drugs used for children. The FDA asked the IOM to review aspects of pediatric studies and changes in product labeling that resulted from BPCA and PREA and their predecessor policies, as well as assess the incentives for pediatric studies of biologics and the extent to which biologics have been studied in children. The IOM committee concludes that these policies have helped provide clinicians who care for children with better information about the efficacy, safety, and appropriate prescribing of drugs. The IOM suggests that more can be done to increase knowledge about drugs used by children and thereby improve the clinical care, health, and well-being of the nation's children.

El agua dulce es un recurso único tan necesario que ha pasado a ser objeto de enfrentamientos políticos y uno de los puntos de mira de los poderes económicos.
Han pasado diez años desde que Naciones Unidas bautizara al 2003 como el Año Internacional del Agua Dulce, y aunque no se sabe muy bien si tal dedicación ha servido en realidad para algo, sí es cierto que al menos se habló del tema, de su problemática específica, de la conservación de ríos y acuíferos, de las posibilidades de desarrollo, de los que tienen de sobra y a los que les falta.
El agua dulce es un recurso realmente en peligro, sobre todo en determinados puntos calientes del planeta. Durante el último siglo se ha venido doblando el consumo de agua potable cada veinte años debido al crecimiento demográfico, pero sobre todo a los excesos de consumo de los países desarrollados.
Más allá del derecho de los Estados al aprovechamiento de los recursos hídricos del Planeta, sobre una base de equidad y con una orientación de desarrollo sostenible, emerge hoy el derecho al agua de los ciudadanos del mundo como un derecho humano esencial vinculado al propio derecho a la vida.

Re-reading Foucault: On Law, Power and Rights is the first collection in English fully to address the relevance of Michel Foucault's thought for law. Foucault is the best known and most cited of the late twentieth-century's 'theory' academics. His work continues to animate a range of different critical work across intellectual disciplines in the arts, humanities and social sciences. There has, however, been relatively little examination of the legal implications and applications of Foucault's work. This book fills that gap, providing an in-depth analysis of Foucault's thought as it pertains to a range of different legal themes, such as: the opposition between 'law' and 'the juridical'; the problem of moral and legal judgment; the historical basis of rights; and the political dimensions (and limitations) of contemporary human rights discourse. Including contributions from acknowledged experts on Foucault's work, as well as pieces by younger scholars, Re-reading Foucault: On Law, Power and Rights will be of considerable interest across a range of disciplines, including law, philosophy, political theory, sociology, social theory and criminology.

En este libro los autores recogen diversos problemas y comprensiones del dolor en su íntima relación con lo humano desde una perspectiva filosófica. El dolor es aquello que nos configura como humanos, como seres contingentes y finitos, que cuestiona e interpela nuestra existencia en el mundo. Por eso, a lo largo del libro, el lector se encontrará con una multiplicidad estructurada de debates en torno a la naturaleza del dolor humano y su relación con diferentes ámbitos de la realidad, como la relgión, el lenguaje, el arte, la ciencia y la cultura. Abordar el dolor a través de este prisma filosófico encierra la complejidad de comprender lo humano desde el dolor de mundo.

Le nom « autisme », reçu comme une évidence, désigne depuis plus d’un demi-siècle une forme extrême de maladie mentale. Pour autant, sait-on dans quels champs de savoirs il a été forgé, à travers quels débats, quels conflits, quels emprunts ? Marie-Claude Thomas débrouille ici l’écheveau textuel où se lit comment Bleuler a réduit l’auto-érotisme de Freud en autisme. Sa « pensée autistique » décrivait un esprit livré à la fantaisie, au rêve, à la poésie : présente chez tout un chacun, elle envahissait la vie du schizophrène. On la retrouve au fondement même de la psychologie de l’enfant, notamment chez Piaget. Trente ans plus tard, sur un autre continent, un médecin lancé dans la toute jeune psychiatrie infantile rencontre quelques enfants mutiques, enfoncés dans une « seulitude » qui semble les couper de toute affectivité. Il les baptise d’un mot dont l’emploi restait jusque-là plutôt mineur : « autistes ». Le syndrome de Kanner était né.

Since its inception, the U.S. human spaceflight program has grown from launching a single man into orbit to an ongoing space presence involving numerous crewmembers. As the U.S. space program evolves, propelled in part by increasing international and commercial collaborations, long duration or exploration spaceflights - such as extended stays on the International Space Station or missions to Mars - become more realistic. These types of missions will likely expose crews to levels of known risk that are beyond those allowed by current health standards, as well as to a range of risks that are poorly characterized, uncertain, and perhaps unforeseeable. As the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Congress discuss the next generation of NASA's missions and the U.S. role in international space efforts, it is important to understand the ethical factors that drive decision making about health standards and mission design for NASA activities

Discusses challenging areas of paediatric palliative care such as ethics, religious rituals, and legality around death
Contains a detailed drug formulary for quick access to the latest drug dosages of medication
Looking after children with life-limiting conditions can be very difficult for both the parents as well as the health care professionals who may only see a few cases in their career. Paediatric Palliative Care is full of easily-accesible, detailed information on medical conditions and symptoms and includes specific management plans. While the book encompasses symptom control, it also considers the philosophy and models that support delivery of palliative medicine to children, while also covering practical delivery of palliative medicine, relating to other professionals and to families, and the learning and coping skills required in palliative care. It also contains a quick-reference drug formulary.

While specialization in paediatric palliative medicine is increasing, for most children with a life-limiting condition, the majority of their care is still provided by professionals without specialist training and care may come from a general paediatric or other sub-specialist team. Others will be cared for by primary care teams, or sometimes by adult palliative medicine teams.The unique significance of this handbook is its capacity to facilitate practical bedside delivery of effective palliative medicine to children by professionals who have not trained or had experience of caring for the dying child.
Readership: Doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who look after children with life-limiting conditions.

An estimated 48 percent of the population takes at least one prescription drug in a given month. Drugs provide great benefits to society by saving or improving lives. Many drugs are also associated with side effects or adverse events, some serious and some discovered only after the drug is on the market. The discovery of new adverse events in the postmarketing setting is part of the normal natural history of approved drugs, and timely identification and warning about drug risks are central to the mission of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not all risks associated with a drug are known at the time of approval, because safety data are collected from studies that involve a relatively small number of human subjects during a relatively short period.

Written in response to a request by the FDA, Ethical and Scientific Issues in Studying the Safety of Approved Drugs discusses ethical and informed consent issues in conducting studies in the postmarketing setting. It evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to generate evidence about safety questions, and makes recommendations for appropriate followup studies and randomized clinical trials. The book provides guidance to the FDA on how it should factor in different kinds of evidence in its regulatory decisions.

Political, economic, social, cultural and technological changes have led to profound transformations in the ways that death and loss are perceived and managed in contemporary society. Over the last few decades, the long term shift to chronic illness as a major causal factor has significantly increased the time scale of dying. Most people die in institutions and 'care' is typically medical. Many communities and ordinary citizens now relinquish control and involvement to experts in the last stages of life.

At global and local levels, however, new arrangements are emerging to govern the changing face of death, and a reorientation model is being developed to counter claims of the 'creeping medicalisation' of death and dying. With an international authorship and scope, this book illustrates the interlinking nature of society, death and loss, and it gives examples of governance that promotes the empowerment, participation and the increasing need for the involvement of ordinary people and communities in differing social and cultural contexts.

In the past 30 years, the population of prisoners in the United States has expanded almost 5-fold, correctional facilities are increasingly overcrowded, and more of the country's disadvantaged populations—racial minorities, women, people with mental illness, and people with communicable diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C, and tuberculosis—are under correctional supervision.
Because prisoners face restrictions on liberty and autonomy, have limited privacy, and often receive inadequate health care, they require specific protections when involved in research, particularly in today's correctional settings. Given these issues, the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Human Research Protections commissioned the Institute of Medicine to review the ethical considerations regarding research involving prisoners.

Emerging and Readily Available Technologies and National Security is a study on the ethical, legal, and societal issues relating to the research on, development of, and use of rapidly changing technologies with low barriers of entry that have potential military application, such as information technologies, synthetic biology, and nanotechnology. The report also considers the ethical issues associated with robotics and autonomous systems, prosthetics and human enhancement, and cyber weapons. These technologies are characterized by readily available knowledge access, technological advancements that can take place in months instead of years, the blurring of lines between basic research and applied research, and a high uncertainty about how the future trajectories of these technologies will evolve and what applications will be possible.

Dual loyalties exist in many medical fields, from occupational health to public health. Military health professionals, as all health professionals, are ethically responsible for their patients' well-being. In some situations, however, military health professionals can face unique ethical tensions between responsibilities to individual patients and responsibilities to military operations.

This book summarizes the one-day workshop, Military Medical Ethics: Issues Regarding Dual Loyalties, which brought together academic, military, human rights, and health professionals to discuss these ethical challenges. The workshop examined two case studies: decisions regarding returning a servicemember to duty after a closed head injury, and decisions on actions by health professionals regarding a hunger strike by detainees. The workshop also addressed the need for improvements in medical ethics training and outlined steps for organizations to take in supporting better ethical awareness and use of ethical sta
