"This volume by leading philosophers, theologians, and political scientists was commissioned by the President's Council on Bioethics. This volume is a good introduction to the topic, but also offers rich, and complex ideas for more advanced readers." -- The Quarterly Review of Biology "The anthology Human Dignity and Bioethics presents a collection of papers originally published by the U.S.-American President's Council on Bioethics 'in response to questions about the Council's use of the term human dignity.' It provides an extremely helpful and illuminating survey of different understandings of 'human dignity' and their consequences for bioethics. It also illustrates the diversity of interpretations that may very well contradict each other and come to different consequences in dealing with bioethical issues . . . The greatest use of the volume lies in its compilation of different approaches and concepts regarding 'human dignity.'" -- Studies in Christian Ethics "These essays make it clear that there is no universal agreement on the meaning of the term, human dignity. Some argue that human dignity has lost its traditional meaning. Others, by contrast, hold firmly to the view that dignity is an essential identifying and irreducible element of human nature. Still others take a more biological than philosophical or theological viewpoint on the question of the meaning of human dignity. An appreciation of the variety of these views is critical, if we are to understand the divergences in how we think and act in response to the challenges posed by contemporary bioethics." -- Edmund D. Pellegrino, M.D.
