"Throughout the past two decades, when medical ethics has had a renaissance, Robert Veatch has been a leading contributor to its dialogue and advance. This collection of his work shows the breadth and the cogency of his thinking.... it is a book worth having." —Journal of the American Medical Association

"... a fascinating dissection of almost every aspect of the doctor-patient relationship.... strongly recommended reading for all health care workers interested in this rapidly evolving field." —Queen’s Quarterly

"This outstanding discussion of important current medical issues is a valuable addition to academic and professional libraries." —Choice

"... an important contribution to bioethics... certain to provoke controversy in the field." —Medical Humanities Review

"Lucid and well-argued... " —Religious Studies Review

This book heralds the imminent demise of "doctor knows best." In it, Robert M. Veatch proposes a postmodern medicine in which decisions about patient care will routinely involve both doctor and patient—not only in ethically complex cases such as the termination of life-sustaining treatment, but in everyday care as well.
