Editorial Reviews


Without question, The Ethics of Bioethics is a must-read for all persons involved with bioethics. This well-written, well-organized paperback seeks to analyze the many facets of ethics in the field of bioethics.


The editors have compiled a cogent collection that signifies an important contribution to bioethics that is reflective of the complexity and importance of the field.

(Mark Dietrich Tschaepe Metapsychology)

Anyone who takes bioethics seriously will find much to applaud.

(William E. Stempsey Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics)

The strength of the volume is not that it answers questions of the ethics of bioethics, but rather that it offers an accurate portrait of the diverse views of the field.

(Lisa Rasmussen American Journal of Bioethics)

The Ethics of Bioethics is a sterling contribution to the ongoing debate in bioethics regarding who we are, what we do, and what we are becoming. I would strongly encourage its use for educators in bioethics who want their students to engage in these ongoing dialogues.

(Kayhan Parsi Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics)

Eckenwiler and Cohn have done the evolving field of bioethics a great service by assembling 25 thoughtful and erudite essays into this excellent book... It is provocative and stimulating and may help change your views about what is most important for medicine in the 21st century.

(Barry Morenz, MD Journal of Clinical Psychiatry)

Why have the values and influence of the scientific enterprise and the medical profession degenerated just as bioethics has ascended to near-disciplinary status? Organizational and political ineptitude, genetic obsessiveness, and ahistorical attitudes, as well as unimaginative prophesizing—all these challenges to the field are discussed in this book, pointing to the need for a deeper bioethics or none at all.

(Peter J. Whitehouse, Case Western Reserve University)

The Ethics of Bioethics is a milestone in the field of bioethics. It brings together all the right people, asking all the right questions and proposing answers to meet the challenges of our time. Anyone who is paid to do work in bioethics—and, for that matter, anyone who takes bioethical inquiry seriously—will need to read this book and engage the issues it raises.

(Matthew Wynia, Past-President, American Society for Bioethics and Humanities)
