The Patient as Person: Explorations in Medical Ethics, Second Edition
2ndPublisher: Yale University PressFormat: Paperback
As physicians are faced with new and wonderful options for saving lives, transplanting organs and furthering research, they also must wrestle with new and troubling choices - who should receive scarce and vital treatment, how we determine when life ends, and what limits should be placed on care for the dying, and more. This work by renowned theologian Paul Ramsey, first published 30 years ago, anticipated and addressed these moral and ethical issues, providing the intellectual foundations for the field of bioethics. This second edition of Ramsey's classic work includes a new foreword by Margaret Farley and essays by Albert R. Jonsen and William F. May that should help to locate and interpret Ramsey historically and intellectually.
