Pellegrino's Clinical Bioethics

A Compendium

Pellegrino's Clinical Bioethics: A Compendium offers, for the first time, a collection of the landmark articles in clinical bioethics authored by the physician and philosopher, Edmund D Pellegrino. As one of the founding figures of modern medical ethics, Dr. Pellegrino gained international renown for his deeply reflective scholarship and for his public service in developing the field. In over 600 scholarly papers and two dozen books, he touched on topics in medical ethics, philosophy, and theology. Previous attempts to collect his work gave rise to a mixed assortment of his thoughts. This volume focuses purely on those topics in clinical bioethics that are sought after by healthcare professionals, professional and graduate students in these fields,
and those involved with clinical bioethics in hospitals and clinics. His legacy and profound influence in the proper practice of the field of medicine is thus made accessible to present and subsequent generations.

"Pellegrino's contribution is significant, deeply relevant, suprisingly timely, and notably prescient.
