BIOETHICS - an introduction

by: Marianne Talbot


This accessible introduction clearly explains philosophical concepts to science students, enabling them to discuss current ethical and social issues in biotechnology with confidence.

Marianne Talbot is a skilled communicator of philosophical concepts to non-philosophers, her informal style and the 250+ exercises in the book encourage students to formulate and evaluate their own arguments and engage critically with the issues. Case studies relate the key concepts to today's ongoing social and ethical issues.

This companion website features podcasts by the author (two of whose podcasts on iTunesU have attracted over 3 million downloads) explaining key philosophical distinctions, concepts and arguments in an engaging and informal way.
