'A work of excellent and accessible scholarship. A clear, coherent and contemporary treatment of bioethics in the Catholic tradition. Highly recommended to anyone interested in bioethics, Catholic or secular.' John Keown, Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Christian Ethics, Georgetown University

'These chapters show how the resources of the Catholic moral tradition can be brought to bear on novel and difficult bioethical problems. They will be of great use not least for those who wish to engage with a range of perspectives before coming to their own conclusions. I could think of no better or more thoughtful introduction to the discipline of Catholic bioethics.' Professor David Albert Jones, Director of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre

'Bishop Anthony Fisher's Catholic Bioethics for a New Millennium provides coherent and comprehensive coverage of many of the most disputed topics in bioethics. With both clarity and charity, Bishop Fisher dispels the myths and misunderstandings that obscure inherent dignity of the human person. He shows the compatibility of faith and reason and ably defends Catholic teaching against critiques from both dissenting theologians and secular philosophers.' Christopher Kaczor, Loyola Marymount University

'… serves as a wonderful example of the very best of theological and philosophical reflection on contemporary issues of interest.' The Tablet

Über das Produkt

An example of a new generation of Catholic bioethical writing, which addresses significant areas of contemporary interest including conscience, cooperation, artificial nutrition and bio lawmaking. Life and death dilemmas such as abortion, stem cells, transplants and euthanasia are treated accessibly for students of ethics and theology as well as medical practitioners.

Flawed account of Catholic bioethics 28. August 2014
Von Greg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In this book, Australian Catholic Bishop Anthony Fisher looks at bioethics and bioethical questions from a Roman Catholic perspective.

The book is basically sound in terms of its ability to put the issues in context and in its use of proper rigor in arguing the issues. What is very disappointing though is often Fisher falls back on the tired old 'culture war' rhetoric of the Catholic right to support his arguments. This starts from the very first chapter where Fisher quotes a 19th century source lamenting the disintegration of 'traditional' values (surprise surprise in the area of sex of course) which he the extends to the rest of the culture. Fisher unfortunately ignores the reasons why people have turned their backs on religion and religious morality in such large numbers in the first place, such as the disgraceful and scandalous conduct of people professing religious beliefs, from the child abuse sex scandals in the church itself to militant Muslims today who glorify suicide bombings, beheadings and kidnapping as acts of virtue.

Frankly given Fisher's degree of experience and learning (he is a Dominican after all) I expected a much higher quality of reasoning and argument as well as pastoral sensitivity in this work. Instead he falls into the trap of 'traditionalist' Catholicism and the useless rhetoric of the far-right which does little to promote the church's ministry of reaching our and protecting the marginalised in the community. It makes no sense to make a huge hue and cry over abortion, euthanasia and access to birth control while being relatively silent about things like corporate greed, marginalisation of the poor, and destruction of the environment. Until the church is seen not as a moral policeman determined to make people 'behave' below the belt but instead as a life-giving institution with something useful to offer to people of good-will besides jingoistic 'I'm better than you, so sit down and listen' fundamentalist slogans in narrow areas of morality, I don't see how Catholic bioethics (especially as presented in culture war form by Fisher) can be appealing to the reasonable person.
