Duty and Healing

Foundations of a Jewish Bioethic

«

"The book is well written and stands on its own merits. The use of real clinical cases, especially, makes for a fascinating interplay between theory and practice throughout. . . Freedman certainly fulfilled his objective of showing how "Religion [in his case, Judaism] can provide a fuller understanding, by placing the questions raised within a global and even cosmic context.' " --David Novak, University of Toronto (ONT)."
"The late Benjamin Freedman's Duty and Healing adds to hisremarkable legacy and reminds us just how much we willmiss his distinctive voice in bioethics. Laying thefoundations for a Jewish approach to bioethics, andillustrating his arguments with numerous case studies,Freedman shows how a model of duty offers a distinctiveand illuminating perspective on ethics consultations,family decisions, informed consent, determinations ofcompetence, and judgments about risk. I stronglyrecommend this book." -- James F. Childress, KyleProfessor of Religious Studies & Professor of MedicalEducation; Co-Director, Virginia Health Policy CenterUniversity of Virginia
"While Freedman's analysis is built solidly on Jewish principles, the resulting practical and theoretical construct reaches out beyond the confines of Judaism and embraces readers who do not necessarily share the author's religious ties. Freedman strongly believed that Judaism and other religious traditions provide a perspective missing, yet badly needed, in current bioethical discussion. His vision of a bioethics based on duties is one that will have broad appeal to those who have become increasingly uncomfortable with a bioethics based on a regime of rights." -- -Theodore Fleischer Perspectives in Biology and Medicine
