Human Dignity and Assisted Death

Edited by Sebastian Muders

  • The first collected volume on human dignity and assisted dying
  • Addresses a gap in the literature - while many moral philosophers have pointed to the importance of human dignity in bioethics, its relationship to important arguments and issues in the debate on assisted dying is still underdeveloped.
  • Offers a broad variety of answers regarding where (for or against) and how (in which arguments) human dignity is relevant to the debate on assisted suicide and euthanasia.
  • Includes new contributions by some of the most well-known contemporary moral philosophers, such as Margaret Battin, William FitzPatrick, Robert P. George and Jeff McMahan.
