Abstract

Dr. Jonathan D. Moreno holds an honored place in American society as one of the most credible voices in the application of philosophical training to contemporary moral, ethical and legal problems in clinical medical care and human subject research. Professor Bard reviews Is There an Ethicist in the House? On the Cutting Edge of Bioethics. It relates Dr. Moreno’s personal experiences making the transition from a philosopher to a bioethicist and reflects his views on the ethical issues that concern medical decision making and human research.
