Bioethics, Medicine and Society: A Provocative Trilogy

Contemporary technological innovations and social developments have led to enormous changes in human fate and freedom. With ethical complexities and challenges emerging in modern medicine, bioethics seeks ways in which people in societies can work together under the provision of medical care and research. The argument is conducted by means of a brief history of bioethics. The field is supposed to provide an insight into the issues of moral community, and into how society understands political authority and its appropriate exercise. As a social movement, bioethics developed in the mid-20th century as a critical discourse, a response to felt inhumanities in the system of healthcare and biomedical research.
