On Complicity and Compromise Nuevo esta semana

Hits: 10
Valoración: 0.00 (0 votos)

Categoría: a) Fundamentación de la bioética
Autor: Chiara Lepora and Robert E. Goodin
Edición: Oxford University Press, 2015
ISBN: 978-0-19-874687-4
Precio: 25Libras

Taxpayers are complicit in the illegal wars waged by their governments.' 'Corporations are complicit in human rights abuses perpetrated by their suppliers.' 'Aid workers who compromise with militias are complicit in their reign of terror.' We hear such allegations all the time. Yet there are many ways of being mixed up with the wrongdoing of others. They are not all on a par, morally; some are worse than others. Furthermore, complicitly contributing to wrongdoing, while still wrong in itself, might nonetheless be the right thing to do if that is the only way to achieve some greater good. Drawing on philosophy, law and political science, and on a wealth of practical experience delivering emergency medical services in conflict-ridden settings, Lepora and Goodin untangle the complexities surrounding compromise and complicity: carefully cataloguing their many varieties; identifying the dimensions along which those differ; and explaining why some are morally more worrying than others. Lepora and Goodin summarize their analysis in a formula that can be used as a decision heuristic for assessing any given act of complicity. They go on to illustrate its practical usefulness by applying it first to some stylized philosophical examples and then, in a more sustained way, to two vexing cases of complicity in the real world: the complicity of humanitarian aid organizations with genocidaires controlling Rwandan refugee camps; and the complicity of physicians treating patients who are being subjected to torture. Both rigorous and rooted, this is a book for philosophers and practitioners alike.
Readership: Scholars and students of political science, moral and political philosophy, ethics, conflict studies, and NGOs.

Narrative Medicine Bridging the Gap between Evidence-Based Care and Medical Humanities Nuevo esta semana

ISBN: 978-3-319-22089-5
Precio: 59,99$

This book examines all aspects of narrative medicine and its value in ensuring that, in an age of evidence-based medicine defined by clinical trials, numbers, and probabilities, clinical science is firmly embedded in the medical humanities in order to foster the understanding of clinical cases and the delivery of excellent patient care. The medical humanities address what happens to us when we are affected by a disease and narrative medicine is an interdisciplinary approach that emphasizes the importance of patient narratives in bridging various divides, including those between health care professionals and patients. The book covers the genesis of the medical humanities and of narrative medicine and explores all aspects of their role in improving healthcare. It describes how narrative medicine is therapeutic for the patient, enhances the patient–doctor relationship, and allows the identification, via patients' stories, of the feelings and experiences that are characteristic for each disease. Furthermore, it explains how to use narrative medicine as a real scientific tool. Narrative Medicine will be of value for all caregivers: physicians, nurses, healthcare managers, psychotherapists, counselors, and social workers.

Famine, Affluence, and Morality Nuevo esta semana

Precio: 6,99Libras

In 1972, Peter Singer published "Famine, Affluence and Morality," which rapidly became one of the most widely discussed essays in applied ethics. Through this article, Singer presents his view that we have the same moral obligations to those far away as we do to those close to us. He argues that choosing not to send life saving money to starving people on the other side of the earth is the moral equivalent of neglecting to save drowning children because we prefer not to muddy our shoes. If we can help, we must-and any excuse is hypocrisy. Singer's extreme stand on the standard of giving has become a powerful topic of discussion in modern philosophy and continues to challenge people's attitudes towards extreme poverty.

As Bill and Melinda Gates observe in their foreword, Singer's essay is as relevant today as it ever was. This short edition provides a valuable collection of the original article, two of Singer's more popular writings on our obligations to those in poverty and a new introduction by Singer that advances the topic with his current thinking.

Well-Being Nuevo esta semana

ISBN: 978-0745662725
Precio: 59,95$

The concept of well-being plays a central role in moral and political theory. Policies and actions are justified or criticized on the grounds that they make people better or worse off. But is there really such a thing as well-being, and if so, what is it? Is it pleasure, desire-satisfaction, knowledge, virtue, achievement, some combination of these, or something else entirely? How can we measure well-being, amongst individuals and society? And how can we use it to make moral judgements about people, policies and institutions?

In this entertaining and accessible new book, Ben Bradley guides readers through the various philosophical theories of well-being, such as hedonism, perfectionism and pluralism, showing the benefits and drawbacks of each theory. He explores the role of well-being in moral and political theory, and the limitations of welfare-based approaches to ethics such as utilitarianism and welfare egalitarianism. Finally, he introduces puzzles about well-being that arise in moral and prudential deliberations about procreation and death.

Well-Being is an ideal introduction to these topics for those with no philosophical background, or for philosophers looking for an overview of current thinking about the subject.

This volume addresses the proper character of patient informed consent to medical treatment and clinical research. The goal is critically to explore the current individually oriented approach to informed consent which grew out of the dominant bioethics movement that arose in the United States in the 1970s. In contrast to that individually oriented approach, this volume explores the importance of family-oriented approaches to informed consent for medical treatment and clinical research. It draws on both East Asian moral resources as well as a critical response to the ways in which the practice of informed consent has developed in the United States

Much recent thought on the ethics of new biomedical technologies, and work in ethics and political philosophy more generally, is committed to hidden and contestable views about the nature of biological reality. This selection of essays by Tim Lewens, a leading expert in the field, teases out these biological foundations of bioethical writing and subjects them to scrutiny. The topics covered include human enhancement, the risks of technical progress, the alleged moral threat of synthetic biology, the reality of human nature, the relevance of evolutionary psychology to social policy, the nature of the distinction between health and disease, and justice in healthcare decision-making.

ISBN: 9781783480371
Precio: 115$

This interdisciplinary collection of essays demonstrates how the ethical and political problems we are confronted with today have come to focus largely on life. The contributors to this volume define and assess the specific meaning of life itself. It is only by doing so that we can understand why life has become an all-encompassing problem, why all questions, especially ethical and political, have become vital questions. We have reached a moment in history where every distinction and opposition is no longer in relation to life, but within it, and where life is at once a theoretical and practical problem. This book throws light on this nexus of problems at the heart of contemporary debates in bioethics and biopolitics. It helps us understand why and how life is understood, valued, cared for and framed today. Taking a genuinely transdisciplinary approach, these essays demonstrate how life is a multifaceted problem and how diverse the origins, foundations and also consequences of bioethics and biopolitics therefore are.

Alfonso Gómez-Lobo with John Keown
Bioethics and the Human Goods offers students and general readers a brief introduction to bioethics from a "natural law" philosophical perspective. This perspective, which traces its origins to classical antiquity, has profoundly shaped Western ethics and law and is enjoying an exciting renaissance. While compatible with much in the ethical thought of the great religions, it is grounded in reason, not religion. In contrast to the currently dominant bioethical theories of utilitarianism and principlism, the natural law approach offers an understanding of human flourishing grounded in basic human goods, including life, health, friendship and knowledge, and in the wrongness of intentionally turning against, or neglecting, these goods.

The book is divided into two sections: Foundations and Issues. Foundations sketches a natural law understanding of the important ethical principles of autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice, and explores different understandings of "personhood" and whether human embryos are persons. Issues applies a natural law perspective to some of the most controversial debates in contemporary bioethics at the beginning and end of life: research on human embryos, abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, the withdrawal of tube-feeding from patients in a "persistent vegetative state," and the definition of death. The text is completed by appendixes featuring personal statements by Alfonso Gómez-Lobo on the status of the human embryo and on the definition and determination of death.

Fourth Edition Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title

""This book provides a systematic approach to bioethical decision making, a process that can help clarify situations where right and wrong are not clearly defined. This is] a valuable book for ethics and theory courses."" Score: 100, 5 stars --Doody's Review of the Fourth Edition

More relevant today than ever, Husted and Husted's classic nursing ethics text provides a practical framework to help nurses engage with patients to make difficult ethical decisions. It delivers a systematic approach to bioethical decision-making that can help clarify situations where "right" and "wrong" are not clearly defined. An abundance of case studies provide practice in bioethical decision-making, with nearly 60 bioethical dilemmas analyzed in detail. The fifth edition has been reorganized and rewritten to facilitate increased readability and to engage readers more fully in learning. It includes two new chapters, Moral Distress and Bioethical Decision Making in Nursing, additional case studies, and abundant tables, diagrams and graphics that reinforce the text discussion.

The book is grounded in the concept of "Symphonia" which, within the health care arena, is the study of agreements between health care professionals and patients and the ethical implications of these agreements. It is intended promote the welfare of both patient and health care provider. The new chapter on Moral Distress offers coping techniques for situations in which a nurse has an ethical issue with a standard of care but is powerless to change that care; the new chapter on Intersections Between Legal and Bioethical Decision Making in Nursing focuses on situations that an be interpreted as either moral and illegal or immoral and legal. The fifth edition also features a new section on ethical colleagueship, providing support to relieve common dilemmas among health care professionals. An updated digital teacher's manual provides chapter summaries, major focus areas, a wealth of classroom activities, PowerPoint slides, resolution for cases that are unresolved in the text, and a test bank.

Autonomy and the Situated Self: A Challenge to Bioethics Nuevo esta semana

Bioethics tells a heroic story about its origins and purpose. The impetus for its contemporary development can be traced to concern about widespread paternalism in medicine, mistreatment of research subjects used in medical experimentation, and questions about the implication of technological developments in medical practice. Bioethics, then, began as a defender of the interests of patients and the rights of research participants, and understood itself to play an important role as a critic of powerful interests in medicine and medical practice. Autonomy and the Situated Self argues that, as bioethics has become successful, it no longer clearly lives up to these founding ideals, and it offers a critique of the way in which contemporary bioethics has been co-opted by the very institutions it once sought (with good reason) to criticize and transform. In the process, it has become mainstream, moved from occupying the perspective of a critical outsider to enjoying the status of a respected insider, whose primary role is to defend existing institutional arrangements and its own privileged position. The mainstreaming of bioethics has resulted in its domestication: it is at home in the institutions it would once have viewed with skepticism, and a central part of practices it would once have challenged. Contemporary bioethics is increasingly dominated by a conception of autonomy that detaches the value of choice from the value of the things chosen, and the central role occupied by this conception makes it difficult for the bioethicist to make ethical judgments. Consequently, despite its very public successes, contemporary bioethics is largely failing to offer the ethical guidance it purports to be able to provide.

Emotion is at the centre of our personal and social lives. To love or to hate, to be frightened or grateful is not just a matter of how we feel on the inside: our emotional responses direct our thoughts and actions, unleash our imaginations, and structure our relationships with others. Yet the role of emotion in human life has long been disputed. Is emotion reason?s friend or its foe? From where do the emotions really arise? Why do we need them at all?

In this accessible and carefully argued introduction, Carolyn Price focuses on some central questions about the nature and function of emotion. She explores the ways in which emotion contrasts with belief and considers how our emotional responses relate to our values, our likes and our needs. And she investigates some of the different ways in which emotional responses can be judged as fitting or misplaced, rational or irrational, authentic or inauthentic, sentimental or profound. Throughout, she develops a particular view of emotion as a complex and diverse phenomenon, which reflects both our common evolutionary past and our different cultural and personal histories.

Engagingly written with lots of examples to illuminate our understanding, this book provides the ideal introduction to the topic for students and scholars and anyone interested in delving further into the intricate web of human emotion.

Transhumanisme. Il y a quelques années, ce terme était peu connu du public, avant les livres de ou Jean-Claude Guillebaud. Quelle est cette idée parmi « les plus dangereuses du monde » ? Ni plus, ni moins que de faire de la transformation des corps, puis de toute l’espèce humaine, un objectif majeur. Cette transformation, dans le sens d’une augmentation des capacités et d’un allongement considérable de l’espérance de vie, serait le fruit d’une convergence des nouvelles technologies. Ce courant utopiste est révélateur des glissements sismiques que la définition de l’humain est en train de vivre. Des frontières autrefois établies, sont mises à mal par l’essor technologique : frontière entre l’humain et l’animal, entre l’humain et la machine, entre le corps et l’esprit. Un état des lieux et un diagnostic ne sauraient suffire. Il faut en effet poser un jugement et, s’il rencontre quelque estime, le soumettre à la discussion publique. Faut-il se résoudre à dire adieu à cet humain qui doit faire l’amour pour avoir des enfants ? Qui doit apprendre et s’exercer pour connaître ? Qui souffre et meurt, et apprend à rester un vivant ? Dire adieu à cet humain qui doit se discipliner, éduquer son corps, écouter son âme ?

Franck Damour est philosophe et professeur agrégé d’histoire. Créateur de la revue Nunc, collaborateur de la revue Etudes, il est particulièrement attentif aux grandes tendances de la culture contemporaine. Il a publié Olivier Clément, un passeur : Son itinéraire spirituel et théologique, Anne Sigier, Québec, 2003 Qu’avons-nous fait de l’au-delà ?, éditions Bayard, 2011 Le pape noir : Genèse d’un mythe, éditions Lessius, 2013.

For more than 30 years and until his death in 2004 Jacques Derrida remained one of the most influential contemporary philosophers. It may be difficult to evaluate what forms his heritage will take in the future but Derrida Now provides some provocative suggestions. Derrida’s often-controversial early reception was based on readings of his complex works, published in journals and collected in books. More recently attention has tended to focus on his later work, which grew out of the seminars that he presented each year in France and the US. The full texts of these seminars are now the subject of a major publication project, to be produced over the next ten years.

Derrida Now presents contemporary articles based on or around the study of Derrida. It provides a critical introduction to Derrida’s complex and controversial thought, offers careful analysis of some of his most important concepts, and includes essays that address the major strands of his thought. Derrida’s influence reached not only into philosophy but also into other fields concerned with literature, politics, visual art, law, ecology, psychoanalysis, gender and sexuality and this book will appeal to readers in all these disciplines. Contributors include Peggy Kamuf, Geoff Bennington, Sarah Wood, Roy Sellars, Graham Allen, and Irving Goh.

La pregunta de la que partimos es: si la objeción de conciencia se traduce de hecho en la negativa al cumplimiento de una norma imperativa, estamos ante una negación del Derecho, ¿cómo, entonces, construir con solvencia conceptual un derecho que se edifica sobre la propia negación del Derecho?

A partir de una nueva visión del alcance del ejercicio de los derechos de la personalidad de los menores contenida en el código civil, la obra aporta soluciones prácticas a problemas cotidianos en materia sanitaria, y de las nuevas tecnologías de la información y comunicación.


Los derechos de la personalidad no pueden ser ejercidos por representación. El problema surge cuando el menor tiene que adoptar decisiones relativas a su salud, a su imagen o su derecho de participación. En estos casos, ¿qué papel juegan los menores?¿es el mismo independientemente de su edad? y ¿y cuál es el de los padres?. La obra aporta soluciones jurídicas a estas cuestiones.


En ella se concreta y define un especial y actualizado tratamiento sobre el interés superior del menor, incluyendo la Observación General No. 14 (2013) del Comité de Derechos del Niño de Naciones Unidas, sobre esta cuestión
En todo el desarrollo del trabajo se tienen en cuenta las novedades legislativas sobre las que trabajan el Proyecto de Ley de Jurisdicción voluntaria, así como los Proyectos de Ley de protección a la infancia y Proyecto de Ley Orgánica complementaria a la Ley de protección a la infancia.

Once a synonym for death, cancer is now a prognosis of multiple probabilities and produces a world of uncertainty for carers. Drawing on rich, in-depth interview data and employing interactionist theories, Towards a Sociology of Cancer Caregiving explores carers' lived experiences, paying close attention to the ways in which spouse carers manage the ambiguity that pervades their orientations to the future, their responsibilities and their emotions.

A detailed exploration of the temporal and emotional journeys of spouse carers of cancer patients, this volume raises and responds to new questions about how to conceptualise informal caregiving, offering a fresh theorisation of the uncertainty that now characterises cancer. As such, it will appeal to scholars of the sociologies of emotion, time and identity, and all those interested in the question of how to support informal carers.Contents: Preface, Annemarie Goldstein Jutel; Introduction; Identity: exploring identity in the ‘figured worlds’ of cancer caregiving and marriage; Loss: indefinite loss: the experiences of carers of a spouse with cancer; Coping: managing hope, denial or temporal anomie?; Feeling: prognosis ambiguity, role conflict and emotion work in cancer caregiving; Time: a time-sovereignty approach to understanding carers’ emotions and support preferences; Conclusion: towards a sociology of cancer caregiving; References; Appendices; Index.

La revolución digital ha dado paso a la sociedad digital, una nueva sociedad en la que todos los factores humanos, los sectores productivos y los ámbitos de la vida de las personas se han visto profundamente afectados. El mundo que habitamos en los albores del siglo XXI es ya irreversiblemente digital y para las generaciones nacidas en el seno de la web social resulta imposible imaginar que Internet, alguna vez, no existió. En el ámbito de la sanidad, el espectacular desarrollo tecno-lógico de las dos últimas décadas ha cambiado por entero el material y el método de la actuación médica. Hoy, todos los hospitales del mundo desarrollado pugnan por tener los mejores equipos digitales, que se han convertido en complementos diagnósticos y terapéuticos insustituibles para la medicina moderna. El ámbito de la salud pública digital ha sido el estímulo de este ensayo y de la ficción literaria que lo complementa.

Genes and the Bioimaginary examines the dramatic rise and contemporary cultural apotheosis of ‘the gene’. The book traces not only the genetification of modern life but is also a journey through the complex relationship between science and culture.

At the heart of this book are three interlinked questions. The first concerns the paradigmatic transformations of the ‘genetics revolution’: how can we understand the impact of ‘genes’ on social arenas as diverse as law and agriculture, politics and medicine, genealogy and jurisprudence? Second, how has the language of genes come to pervade public discourse - as much a trope of personal narrative as of the popular imaginary? And third, how can we gain critical purchase not only on the conditions and consequences of a particular science, but on its projective seductions, the terms of its persuasion, and the dilemmas and anxieties provoked in its wake?

Through a series of illuminating case studies ranging from ‘gay genes’ to ‘Jew’s genes’, to genes for ‘crime’; from CSI to the Innocence Project, from genetics’ (post)racial imaginary to its phantasies of redemption, the book examines the emergence of the gene as a pre-eminent locus of both scientific and social explanation, and as a powerful object of spectacle, projective phantasy and attachment.

Genes and the Bioimaginary makes a distinctive contribution to our understanding of how knowledge comes to be not only powerful, but plausible.

Un libro que nos descubrirá que nuestro cerebro es una gran fábrica de ilusiones y que conceptos como la felicidad y el amor, o el estrés y determinadas enfermedades, radican en las neuronas. En consecuencia, para sacarle rendimiento al cerebro y, más importante aún, para tener bienestar, resulta imprescindible conocerlo a fondo.

In the twenty-first century the basic questions of ethics are no longer the abstract terms of ethical theory, but the concrete and burning issues related to the influence of life sciences, the impact of a globalized economy, and the consequences of present decisions for the future of humankind. Ethics: The Fundamental Questions of Our Lives analyzes twenty ethical issues that address education and culture, labor and economy, the environment and sustainability, democracy and cosmopolitanism, peace and war, and life and death. Each chapter describes a concrete example showing the relevance of the fundamental ethical question, then provides an explanation of how one can think through possible responses and reactions. Huber emphasizes the connections between personal, professional, and institutional ethics and demonstrates how human relationships lie at the center of our ethical lives. His aim is to articulate a theology of what he calls "responsible freedom" that transcends individualistic self-realization and includes communal obligations. - See more at:

La médecine antique nous semble balbutiante et périmée. Elle peut se lire comme un début, une avancée glorieuse mais réversible à laquelle la médecine moderne aurait d'une certaine façon mis un terme. Pourtant, plus qu'un moment daté elle est un commencement, où la médecine de l'Occident est instituée. Hippocrate représente un accès à la genèse archivée mais vivante du geste médical.

L'Humanitude au pouvoir: comment les citoyens peuvent décider du bien commun

Enfin une bonne nouvelle en politique : on peut se fier à la capacité des citoyens à raisonner et à décider dans l’intérêt public ! Ce livre explique pourquoi et comment…

« Humanitude ». C’est ainsi que l’auteur baptise l’étonnante capacité des simples citoyens à comprendre les enjeux, à réfléchir, à délibérer et à prendre des décisions au nom de l’intérêt commun de l’humanité. Cet état transitoire se manifeste chez les personnes invitées à constituer des jurys citoyens pour proposer une solution à un problème d’intérêt général. L’humanitude est une propriété générale des êtres humains largement confirmée par l’expérience répétée des conférences de citoyens réunies à l’occasion de controverses sociotechniques. Jacques Testart propose d’exploiter cette capacité pour en faire un outil privilégié d’orientation et de gestion des sociétés humaines. Un protocole rationalisé et reproductible pour ces procédures est disponible sous le nom de convention de citoyens. L’auteur montre ensuite pourquoi et comment ce type de convention pourrait constituer une procédure ordinaire intervenant dans la plupart des choix publics fondamentaux : l’examen critique des programmes électoraux, les controverses sur des sujets de société, les choix à portée anthropologique tels ceux qui s’imposent à tous les humains pour les risques éthiques, écologiques et sanitaires liés aux innovations technologiques.

Neuroscience et droit pénal: Le cerveau dans le prétoire

À l'heure actuelle, les données des neurosciences bénéficient d'un intérêt grandissant en matière pénale, à travers ce qu'il est convenu d'appeler le "neurodroit". De manière générale, le système judiciaire peut faire appel aux sciences du cerveau à des fins préventives, répressives ou thérapeutiques. Cependant, si les applications des neurosciences peuvent contribuer à la prévention et à la répression du phénomène criminel, ne risquent-elles pas, à plus ou moins long terme, de bouleverser les principes fondamentaux de la justice et du droit ?

Reims, 29 avril 2013. Le plus gros choc de ma vie. Je suis au chevet de mon fils. Mon fils, vous comprenez ? Je le vois mourir sous mes yeux. Vincent n'a rien mangé depuis vingt jours. Il est à peine hydraté. Il est là, devant moi, dans un lit d'hôpital à Reims, amaigri, affaibli, et il va mourir. Dans un jour ? Dans cinq jours ? Je ne sais pas... Mais il va mourir parce que quelqu'un l'a décidé. Un médecin lui a supprimé toute nourriture, presque toute hydratation, pour le mettre sur un chemin de "fin de vie". Je parle à Vincent, mais il ne peut pas me répondre : il est en "état de conscience minimale", comme le disent les spécialistes. Il peut ressentir des émotions, mais il est incapable de s'exprimer. Il me regarde, et il pleure. Des larmes coulent le long de ses joues. Il va mourir, il souffre, je le sais : je suis sa mère ! " Viviane Lambert L'affaire Lambert est devenue un symbole du débat sur la fin de vie. Sa mère prend la plume pour simplement raconter les faits. Ni intégriste, ni passionaria, ni manipulée, elle veut juste nous aider à comprendre les raisons de sa bataille et sauver son fils.

Gestación por encargo: tratamiento judicial y soluciones prácticas

Edición: Reus, 2015

Ante la pasividad del legislador, la contienda jurídica entre los tribunales españoles y la Dirección General de los Registros y del Notariado y las consideraciones realizadas por las Sentencias del Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos, se proponen soluciones prácticas concretas para la problemática cuestión del convenio de gestación por sustitución o encargo en España que, en principio, se encuentra prohibido en nuestro ordenamiento jurídico por el artículo 10, 1 de la Ley de Técnicas de Reproducción Humana Asistida de 2006.
En primer lugar, se analizarán los convenios gestacionales realizados por españoles en España, distinguiéndose las hipótesis de que el comitente o uno de los comitentes sea aportante de material reproductor o de que ninguno de ellos lo sea. La acción de reclamación de la paternidad o las figuras del acogimiento familiar o de la adopción serán mecanismos válidos para la virtualidad del contrato realizado. En segundo término, se abordan los convenios de gestación por encargo hechos por españoles en países cuya legislación los permita. En esta sede, se diferencian los supuestos en los que la filiación jurídica, entre el comitente o los comitentes y el hijo así nacido, derive de certificación registral que sea reflejo de una resolución judicial firme y los casos en que dicha certificación registral extranjera no provenga de una tal resolución judicial anterior, a los que se les debe dar también una solución eficaz.

Medical practice is practiced morality, and clinical research belongs to normative ethics. The present book elucidates and advances this thesis by: 1. analyzing the structure of medical language, knowledge, and theories; 2. inquiring into the foundations of the clinical encounter; 3. introducing the logic and methodology of clinical decision-making; 4. suggesting comprehensive theories of organism, life, and psyche; of health, illness, and disease; of etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, prevention, and therapy; and 5. investigating the moral and metaphysical issues central to medical practice and research.
