New publications on the foundations of bioethics have proliferated during the past few years, suggesting that the saturation point for commentary on this topic could soon be reached. However, The Philosophy and Practice of Medicine and Bioethics: A Naturalistic/Humanistic Approach shows that a good deal more may be said.
The book is the work of Barbara Maier and Warren Shibles, both noted ethics scholars. Maier is an academic physician, teacher, scholar, and philosopher. Shibles, who died in 2007, was the author of 27 books and 180 professional journal articles; his scholarly focus was in ethics, aesthetics, language, metaphor, and humor.
