About this product
- DescriptionOne of the cherished myths of medical ethics is that techlogical progress, by producing situations which are historically or ethically unprecedented, has destroyed the moral consensus on which traditional medicine has been based. The problem with this myth is that it overlooks the intense and incessant controversies that have characterized medicine for more than two millennia. Michael Jerome Carella has traced contemporary sciences, ethics, and medicine back to their ancient Greek origins. In doing so, he has provided the context essential for understanding the particular manner in which science, ethics, and techlogy have come together to create the ethical dilemmas of contemporary medicine.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Michael Jerome Carella received his education in philosophy of science at the University of Louvain. Since 1972 he has published extensively on the ethical dilemmas of science and technology. From 1977-1980 he was a member of the Board of Medical Quality Assurance of the State of California.
