Rethinking the Ethics of Clinical Research

Widening the Lens

Alan Wertheimer

  • This book challenges the "medical exceptionalism" that characterizes much thinking in bioethics.
  • By widening the lens through which we see the recruitment and use of research subjects, it argues that some of the standard principles of research ethics are difficult to defend.
