Pastoral Aesthetics

A Theological Perspective on Principlist Bioethics

Nathan Carlin

  • Offers a creative new take on the most influential book in the history of bioethics, The Principles of Biomedical Ethics, through both powerful endorsement and rigorous critique
  • Examines the fertile intersection of religion and medicine, and argues for a significant but subtle role for theology in bioethics
  • Demonstrates how pastoral theologians can enrich moral imagination in bioethics by cultivating an aesthetic sensibility that is theologically-informed, psychologically-sophisticated, therapeutically-oriented, and experientially-grounded
  • Includes original material from pastoral care conversations
