  1. Death, Brain Death, and Ethics.David Lamb - 1985 - State University of New York Press.
    Dramatic changes in medical technology challenge mankind’s traditional ways of diagnosing death. Death, Brain Death and Ethics examines the concept of death against the background of these changes, as well as ethical and philosophical issues arising from attempts to redefine the boundaries of life. In this book, David Lamb supports the use of brain-related criteria for the diagnosis of death, and proposes a new clinical definition of death based on both medical and philosophical principles. Death, Brain Death and Ethics articulates (...)

  2. The Worst Enemy of Science? Essays in Memory of Paul Feyerabend.John Preston, Gonzalo Munévar & David Lamb (eds.) - 2000 - Oup Usa.
    This stimulating collection is devoted to the life and work of the most flamboyant of twentieth-century philosophers, Paul Feyerabend. Feyerabend's radical epistemological claims, and his stunning argument that there is no such thing as scientific method, were highly influential during his life and have only gained attention since his death in 1994. The essays that make up this volume, written by some of today's most respected philosophers of science, many of whom knew Feyerabend as students and colleagues, cover the diverse (...)

    Down the Slippery Slope: Arguing in Applied Ethics.David Lamb - 1988 - Routledge.
    A `slippery slope' argument in medical ethics is one that opposes itself to a new proposal on the grounds that it is not per se intolerable but will lead to a situation that is. Lamb evaluates such arguments, demonstrating their centrality to the subject.

  9. The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence: A Philosophical Inquiry.David Lamb - 2001 - Routledge.
    Is the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence a genuine scientific research programme? David Lamb evaluates claims and counter-claims, and examines recent attempts to establish contact with other intelligent life forms. He considers the benefits and drawbacks of this communication, how we should communicate and whether we actually can. He also assesses competing theories on the origin of life on Earth, discoveries of former solar planets, proposals for space colonies and the consequent technical and ethical issues.

Two lines of criticism of animal liberation are rejected: (1) that animal-liberation is not as serious as human liberation since humans have interests which override those of animals; (2) that the concept of animal liberation blurs distinctions between what is appropriate for humans and what is appropriate foranimals.

    Autonomy and the Refusal of Life-Prolonging Therapy.David Lamb - 1995 - Res Publica 1 (2):147-162.
    Autonomous decision-making over therapy options is not reducible to the refusal of unwanted medical intervention. This is a myth that has been imported from questionable assumptions in political economy, and is of little benefit to medical practice and the sometimes agonizing decisions which have to be taken by patients and their relatives. An individual's right to therapy abatement can be protected from abuse only in the context of a full understanding of autonomous choice; not merely the right to refuse, but (...)

    Brain Death and Brainstem Death: Philosophical and Ethical Considerations: David Lamb.David Lamb - 1987 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 22:231-249.
    This paper examines the development of the concept of brain death and of the criteria necessary for its recognition. Competing formulations of brain death are assessed and the case for a ‘brainstem’ concept of death is argued. Attention is finally drawn to some of the ethical issues raised by the use of neurological criteria in the diagnosis of human death.

    The papers in this collection were first presented at the fifth biennial meeting of the Hegel Society of America in 1978. They all have Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit as their central point of reference, and include papers dealing with his methodology, the place of the PG in his wider project, and the inevitable comparisons with other philosophers, particularly Kierkegaard and Marx. These are finely balanced with scholarly interpretations of specific sections of the PG. Together they represent a unified and systematic (...)

    Organ transplantation has given hope when formerly death was inevitable. But the replacement of vital organs highlights major moral and philosophical problems in medicine concerning the role of physicians and nurses, patient autonomy, and respect for the dying and the dead. These include the morality of excising organs from a healthy donor, and related problems regarding an individual’s consent to have organs removed for the benefit of others. These problems are not restricted to live organ donation: cadaveric organ removal raises (...)
