New: Marianne Talbot's 'Bioethics: An Introduction'
This new book provides readers with the confidence needed to debate key issues in bioethics.
Marianne Talbot, our Director of Studies in Philosophy, is loved by iTunes U audiences around the world for her highly accessible forays into difficult philosophical topics. In her new book, Bioethics: An Introduction, she employs that same user-friendly approach to this dynamic subject. The book is published by the Cambridge University Press, and is now available.
From the publisher: 'Over 250 activities introduce topics for personal reflection, and discussion points encourage students to think for themselves and build their own arguments. Highlighting the potential pitfalls for those new to bioethics, each chapter features boxes providing factual information and outlining the philosophical background, along with detailed case studies that offer an insight into real-life examples of bioethical problems. Within-chapter essay questions and quizzes, along with end-of-chapter review questions, allow students to check their understanding and to broaden their thinking about the topics discussed. The accompanying podcasts by the author (two of whose podcasts on iTunes U have attracted over 3 million downloads) explain points that might be difficult for beginners.'
