Item description for Compassionate Respect: A Feminist Approach to Medical Ethics and Other Questions (Madeleva Lecture) by Margaret A. Farley...

Overview
Considers current debates in medical ethics while proposing an approach that takes account of women's experience, feminist ethics, and the potential contributions of religious traditions. Original.

Publishers Description
This lecture addresses current tensions in medical ethics as it has developed in the past thirty years. Debates now rage about the importance of principles versus personal character, rights versus responsibilities, and individual autonomy versus concerns for the well being of patients. Moreover, the public nature of medical ethical problems, which are often addressed in the secular sphere, has tended to obscure the role of religious ethics within medical ethics. Margaret Farley proposes a new approach to all of these issues, an approach that takes account of women's experience, feminist ethics, and the potential contributions of religious traditions to problems encountered in the medical context. She includes considerations of particular issues such as decisions for death and requirements of justice in the effective worldwide distribution of medical care.

Reviews - What do customers think about Compassionate Respect: A Feminist Approach to Medical Ethics and Other Questions (Madeleva Lecture)?

Indispensable for nurses   Oct 12, 2007
This book is quite indespensable for nurses that want to fundament their interventions in moral and ethic modern values, althought values, as values should be universal and last for ever. The author showed us with a practical example that is a mundial epidemy "HIV" the importance of values in health services, and the importance of change of atitudes and false morality that served for perpetuating male domination, women servility and bad health condiions for society in general. This book adds knowledge to lilerature in general and on compassion and respect in particular. Is a bibliografic cientific resource we read with pleasure.
