DESCRIPTION

Embodiment, Morality and Medicine deals with the relevance of 'embodiment' to bioethics, considering both the historical development and contemporary perspectives on the mind-body relation. The emphasis of all authors is on the importance of the body in defining personal identity as well as on the role of social context in shaping experience of the body. Among the perspectives considered are Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, and African-American. Feminist concerns are important throughout.
