Product description

Product Description

Experiments in Love and Death is about the depth and complexity of the ethical issues that arise in illness and medicine.

In his concept of ‘microethics’ Paul Komesaroff provides an alternative to the abstract debates about principles and consequences that have long dominated ethical thought. He shows how ethical decisions are everywhere: in small decisions, in facial expressions, in almost inconspicuous acts of recognition and trust.
Through powerful descriptions of case studies and clear and concise explanations of contemporary philosophical theory the book brings discussions about ethics in medicine back to where they belong—to the level of the everyday experience where people live, suffer and hope.
A fresh and evocative look at the changing world of ethics as it applies to health and illness, this is an important book for all those touched by illness or suffering.
