Produktbeschreibungen

Pressestimmen

"A wonderfully rich and evocative investigation into the choices that confront us at the edges of life and death."--Lawrence Tribe, The New York Times Book Review

"Dworkin has made a miracle, so meticulous and rich a reformulation of how we think about the borders between life and death that it illuminates the very nature of how we live our lives."--Joan Didion.

Synopsis

Charges that the abortion debate misrepresents the complex opinions of Americans, contending that the key question is how to respect both individual freedom and the conviction that human life is sacred.

Einleitungssatz
Abortion, which means deliberately killing a developing human embryo, and euthanasia, which means deliberately killing a person out of kindness, are both choices for death. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good moral introspective 14. Oktober 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm reading this book as part of and Ethics and Health Care course and find Dworkin's argument to be a concise moral overview of the current debate on abortion and euthanasia. He does equal justice to views from the Catholic Church to the Women's movement on aspects of abortion and gives those with a less extensive legal background an easily understandable assessment of important precedents and pending legislation. I found his coverage on other other systems outside of the US to be lacking, but realize this is not the primary focus of his work. For a better analysis of the current acceptability and status of PAS and euthanasia in the Netherlands look for articles by Van der Maas and Angell in JAMA or the NEJM. Overall, Dworkin does justice to a highly controversial issue with adequate research and moral reasoning. An excellant beginner to understanding abortion and euthanasia.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Search for Intrinsic Value 12. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Dworkin has the right idea in given reason to believe that some things have intrinsic value because our intuitions about certain values cannot be explained with only subjective and instrumental values. However, his idea that creative process is what gives something intrinsic value seems wrong to me. The value of some of the things that Dworkin says have intrinsic value seems to be value that can be explained otherwise. Dworkin claims that the flag has intrinsic value, but its value can be explained by instrumental alone--the U.S. flag serves the purpose of representing a country. However, Dworkin's argument is interesting--the idea he has as to how to arrive at intrinsic value through unexplained intuitions is a good one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent and Thought-Provoking Book 8. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Amazingly, Dworkin offers a new take on the abortion dispute--and I think a correct one. I don't agree with everything he says, but this book sheds more light on these issues than any other that I have read. I would say that it is the best philosophical book I have read in a long while. Among the many things that I appreciate about this book is that Dworkin along the way also has interesting and insightful things to say about the philosophy of mind, the meaning of life, and the nature of human dignity. If you are at all interested in bio-ethics, the philosophy of the abortion dispute, euthanasia, or the meaning of life--read this book. I plan to re-read it soon.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely love it. 4. Februar 2014
Von Cassiel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book tackles really important questions about the sanctity of life, the questions that I feel are purposely glossed over when it comes to abortion and euthanasia debates because the answers, though true, are morbid and against many ideals that society has created regarding life. This book is definitely a keeper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not for the Pro-Life crowd. 22. Mai 2007
Von John Hopkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is one of the most amazing and critical inquiries into a socially relevant topic of the 20th century. The arguments are almost flawless, beautifully interwoven with examples, anecdotes and personally relevant stories spanning the whole spectrum of human emotion.

This book will not bore you. It will be quite interesting from a humanistic, legal and historical point of view. However, Ronald Dworkin is indeed a liberal philosopher who believes that liberal social policy (in regards to abortion and euthanasia) can coexist with one's belief that life is ever precious.

Naturally, conflicting and strict moral belief systems divide conservatives and liberals in regards to such hot-button issues. If you are truly willing to read this book with an open mind, you will not be disappointed and perhaps will become a better and more informed advocate. On the other hand, if you read this book while conceptualizing some circular reasoning debasing Dworkin's every word - in favor of a verse from the bible - this book is certainly not for you!
