The growth of bioethics as a field of inquiry has produced important work using many different methods, some descriptive and some normative. The book under review is the first attempt to systematically explore these different methods, with six chapters on normative approaches (philosophy, theology, professional codes, law, casuistry, and history) and five chapters on more descriptive approaches (qualitative, ethnographic, quantitative, experimental, and economic). As such, it is an important contribution to the field.
