The History and Future of Bioethics

A Sociological View

John H. Evans

  • An unorthodox history of the profession of bioethics and bioethical debate itself
  • The most complete explanation available of the history of bioethics, and especially on the divorce between religion and bioethics
  • A controversial proposal for restructuring bioethical debate in order to solve its problems, which includes the claim that self-identified bioethicists no longer participate in particular debates in order to strengthen their position elsewhere
  • Proposes that government bioethics commissions fundamentally restructure their activities to make their claims more appropriate for a representative democracy
