Beschreibung

"This exceptionally cogent contribution to an often muddled debate defends legal prohibitions of physician-assisted suicide (PAS), while urging that 'comfort-only care' -- in which life-sustaining treatments may be discontinued -- should be available for terminally ill patients. Dyck displays a strong grasp of relevant issues in ethics, law, and political philosophy, and represents opposing views with scrupulous accuracy."

Portrait

Arthur J. Dyck is Professor of Population Ethics at Harvard School of Public Health, and co-director of the Kennedy Interfaculty Program in Medical Ethics, Harvard University.
