Brings together the philosophy of medical ethics and Jewish Law, halacha , to illuminate important issues such as the right to die, the role of the family in medical decisions, questions of informed consent, and the responsibility that families, doctors, and hospitals have to the sick. Discusses the distinctions between an ethics whose foundational language is of duty, as is true of the Jewish approach, and contrasts it with our common Western ethical approach, whose basis is rights. This print edition is 20% shorter than the Internet version, which first appeared in 1996. The author was professor of medicine and philosophy in the Biomedical Ethics Unit at McGill University.
