  1. Maria M. Boscolo Contadin & Renata Trevisan (forthcoming). Alicia Ouellette: Bioethics and Disability: Toward a Disability-Conscious Bioethics. Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics:1-3.
    Alicia Ouellette’s Bioethics and Disability: Toward a Disability-Conscious Bioethics is the result of her “ten-year journey toward disability consciousness” (p. 5). By saying so, Ouellette suggests a bioethics “mindful of and knowledgeable about the fact of disability in bioethical cases” (p. 316). Thus, a common struggle should be overcome: bioethics versus the disability rights community.The book begins with an introduction to (and a brief history of) Bioethics on the one side and the disability rights community on the other. Ouellette then (...)

  2. William G. Hoy (forthcoming). Kenneth J. Doka, Amy S. Tucci, Charles A. Corr, and Bruce Jennings (Eds): End-of-Life Ethics: A Case Study Approach. Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics:1-5.
    As readers of Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics undoubtedly know, edited books can be highly uneven in their quality, with some chapters excelling in content, depth, and readability while others languish in mediocrity. Volumes in an annually issued series run an even greater risk of suffering the plague of inferiority, especially after many years of fame and success. End-of-Life Ethics: A Case Study Approach clearly overcomes these maladies and provides readers with an excellent collection of well-written, thought-provoking essays.The Hospice Foundation of (...)

  3. Gregory S. Poore (forthcoming). Glenn McGee: Bioethics for Beginners: 60 Cases and Cautions From the Moral Frontier of Healthcare. Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics:1-4.
    Reading and reflecting on real cases helps ethics come alive for students. Good cases grip our attention, engage our imagination, and show the real-life implications of abstract ethical theories, ideals, commitments, and policies. Finding good case studies is both difficult and time-consuming for instructors, so I was excited to learn about Glenn McGee’s book Bioethics for Beginners: 60 Cases and Cautions from the Moral Frontier of Healthcare. According to the publisher, its target audiences are “courses in bioethics, medical ethics, and (...)

  5. Anna Smajdor (forthcoming). How Useful is the Concept of the 'Harm Threshold' in Reproductive Ethics and Law? Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics:1-16.
    In his book Reasons and Persons, Derek Parfit suggests that people are not harmed by being conceived with a disease or disability if they could not have existed without suffering that particular condition. He nevertheless contends that entities can be harmed if the suffering they experience is sufficiently severe. By implication, there is a threshold which divides harmful from non-harmful conceptions. The assumption that such a threshold exists has come to play a part in UK policy making. I argue that (...)
