Medical Ethicists Confront Cancer

Edited by Rebecca Dresser

  • The authors are bioethics scholars and teachers who were used to thinking about cancer from a professional, academic perspective but who came to understand in a different light when they encountered the illness in their personal lives.
  • Unlike most cancer narratives, this book brings together a group of perspectives rather than giving voice to only one.
  • The authors have different values and social backgrounds, as well as training in different disciplines (medicine, philosophy, law, sociology, and anthropology). This diversity enables them to consider a wider range of clinical and policy matters than those addressed by individual authors.
