Human Dignity and Bioethics free pdf This collection of essays, commissioned by the President's Council on Bioethics, explores a fundamental concept crucial to today's discourse in law and ethics in general and in bioethics in particular. Since its formation in 2001, the council has frequently used the term 'human dignity' in its discussions and reports. In this volume scholars from the fields of philosophy, medicine and medical ethics, law, political science, and public policy address the issue of what the concept of 'human dignity' entails and its proper role in bioethical controversies. "Human Dignity and Bioethics" is an attempt to clarify a controversial concept, one that is a critical component in the decisions of policymakers.
