Ethical issues in modern medicine are of great concern and interest to all physicians and health-care providers throughout the world, as well as to the public at large. Jewish scholars and ethicists have discussed medical ethics throughout Jewish history, presenting their viewpoints in accordance with Jewish law and philosophy. Fifteen years in the making, this all-encompassing, meticulously researched work is a comprehensive encyclopedic, systematic, orderly and concise work on Jewish medical ethics. The author, acclaimed both as a Senior Pediatric Neurologist and as a Clinical Associate Professor in Medical Ethics, is active in various medical and ethical societies in Israel and in the USA. He presents the recorded deliberations and decisions of past and present scholars, the comparative analysis of the Jewish and the general medical-ethical approaches to relevant topics, and halakhic background and intricacies. The Jewish approach to these problems is of interest to all serious students of ethics as it applies to medicine, as well as to rabbis and laypeople. Includes extensive indexes. 3-volume, boxed set.
