Review of Where Science and Ethics Meet

I’ve been notified about two great new reviews for our book Where Science and Ethics Meet: Dilemmas at the frontiers of medicine and biology. One is currently embargoed, though I’m allowed to say it includes “This is the best introduction to the topic that I have ever seen” which is obviously very pleasing. More of that at a later stage.

The second has appeared in BioNews, newsletter of the Progress Educational Trust. Reviewer Cassandra Dighton describes Where Science and Ethics Meet as “a fantastic introductory text to the dilemmas faced by medical ethicists“,  adding that it is “extremely engaging“. The full review can be found by clicking the image below (but be warned it includes a spoiler for the first scenario). She does point out that for readers with higher qualifications in Medical Ethics, this is “not the book to turn to for a comprehensive explanation of a Kantian or Utilitarian approach to ethics”, which is entirely fair!
