    Posthumous Interests: Legal and Ethical Perspectives.Daniel Sperling - 2008 - Cambridge University Press.
    Daniel Sperling discusses the legal status of posthumous interests and their possible defeat by actions performed following the death of a person. The author first explores the following questions: Do the dead have interests and/or rights, the defeat of which may constitute harm? What does posthumous harm consist of and when does it occur, if at all? This is followed by a more detailed analysis of three categories of posthumous interests arising in the medico-legal context: the proprietary interest in the (...)

    Law and Bioethics : A Rights-Based Relationship and its Troubling Implications.Daniel Sperling - 2008 - In Michael D. A. Freeman (ed.), Law and Bioethics / Edited by Michael Freeman. Oxford University Press.
    Some argue that law is the discipline which has mixed most prominently with bioethics, and that bioethicists can be seduced by the law and by legal procedures. While there is a great consensus that law has influenced bioethics in significant and important ways, certainly much more than it influenced other "law and..." disciplines, scholars dispute as to the exact role which the law plays in bioethics, the goals it purports to achieve and the implications of its relationship with the discipline (...)

    Factors Encouraging and Inhibiting Organ Donation in Israel: The Public View and the Contribution of Legislation and Public Policy.Daniel Sperling & Gabriel M. Gurman - 2012 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 9 (4):479-497.
    Although transplantation surgeries are relatively successful and save the lives of many, only few are willing to donate organs. In order to better understand the reasons for donation or refusing donation and their implications on and influence by public policy, we conducted a survey examining public views on this issue in Israel. Between January and June 2010, an anonymous questionnaire based on published literature was distributed among random and selected parts of Israeli society and included organ recipients, organ donors, soldiers, (...)

    Socializing the Public: Invoking Hannah Arendt’s Critique of Modernity to Evaluate Reproductive Technologies. [REVIEW]Daniel Sperling - 2012 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 15 (1):53-60.
    The article examines the writings of one of the most influential political philosophers, Hannah Arendt, and specifically focuses on her views regarding the distinction between the private and the public and the transformation of the public to the social by modernity. Arendt’s theory of human activity and critique of modernity are explored to critically evaluate the social contributions and implications of reproductive technologies especially where the use of such technologies is most dominant within Western societies. Focusing on empirical studies on (...)

    The Therapeutic Triumph: Making Poor Claims and Offering a Revised Conceptualization to Justify Embryo Selection.Daniel Sperling - 2011 - Ethical Perspectives 18 (3):407-440.
    The present article describes and critically evaluates the medical/social distinction as used in the context of embryo selection through pre-implantation genetic diagnosis . According to such a distinction, while embryo selection for medical purposes, for example preventing the birth of a child with severe genetic disease, may be ethically justified, screening and the selection of embryos for social reasons, such as the implantation of an embryo of specific gender or one that carries the gene responsible for intelligence, should not be (...)
