Review: The Politics of Communities: A Review of H. Tristram Engelhardt Jr.'s "The Foundations of Bioethics" [Book Review]

Hypatia 4 (2):179-185 (1989)
This review essay examines H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr.'s The Foundations of Bioethics, a contemporary nonfeminist text in mainstream biomedical ethics. It focuses upon a central concept, Engelhardt 's idea of the moral community and argues that the most serious problem in the book is its failure to take account of the political and social structures of moral communities, structures which deeply affect issues in biomedical ethics
