Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
A little over a hundred years ago, it was forbidden to do research on human corpses. Today, it's still touchy ground. "Observing Bioethics" is a discussion of Bioethics and how they have taken form over the past years. Cloning, stem cell research, simple human anatomy classes are all covered under the banner, and morality has a huge role in what's appropriate to do with the remains of both humans and animals. Educational, enlightening, and a look into the future of biology and what it could bring, both technologically and ethically in coming years. All this makes "Observing Bioethics" worthwhile reading for those in such fields and for non-specialist general readers.
