"Finally we have a thorough exploration of the nature and implications of a progressive approach to bioethics, a needed counterweight to conservative attitudes toward science. Progress in Bioethics deserves a place on the shelf of every thoughtful person interested in the intersection of science, ethics, and public policy." -- Chris Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science
"This volume is a "veritable manifesto" of the progressivist bioethicist perspective on the major issues of the bioethical movement today." -- Edmund D. Pellegrino, The Quarterly Review of Biology
"The essays in this book are beautifully written, with each author presenting a well-reasoned thesis in an eloquent and passionate yet respectful and civil manner. In an age in which controversy is all too often accompanied by confrontation and argumentative discourse, the overall tone of this anthology is refreshing. The book successfully meets the goal of promoting a greater understanding and appreciation of progressivism in bioethics...For scholars, clinicians, and policy-makers whose work is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the primary intellectual debate in bioethics, Progress in Bioethics offers a provocative and stimulating educational experience." -- Andrew R. Barnosky, Journal of the American Medical Association
