Genetics And Christian Ethics
Full Product Description
This book considers ethical issues arising out of specific practices in human genetics, including genetic screening, gene patenting, gene therapy, genetic counselling as well as feminist concerns. Genetics and Christian Ethics argues for a particular theo-ethical approach that derives from a modified version of virtue ethics, drawing particularly on a Thomistic understanding of the virtues, especially prudence or practical wisdom and justice. The book demonstrates that a theological voice is highly relevant to contested ethical debates about genetics.
Applies Christian ethics to the latest debates in genetic science
Argues for a particular theo-ethical approach to current issues in genetics
Shows the strength of the classical tradition of virtue ethics by drawing on the work of Thomas Aquinas
