Death Posthumous Harm and Bioethics

Death  Posthumous Harm  and Bioethics Author James Stacey Taylor

Death, Posthumous Harm, and Bioethics offers a highly distinctive and original approach to the metaphysics of death and applies this approach to contemporary debates in bioethics that address end-of-life and post-mortem issues. Taylor defends the controversial Epicurean view that death is not a harm to the person who dies and the neo-Epicurean thesis that persons cannot be affected by events that occur after their deaths, and hence that posthumous harms (and benefits) are impossible. He then extends this argument by asserting that the dead cannot be wronged, finally presenting a defence of revisionary views concerning posthumous organ procurement.

Connecticut judge David Lawson is a decorated veteran of Iraq, now thrust onto the national stage when the press learns he’s up for an unexpected vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite his successful career and his loyal political team of friends who understand Supreme Court politics, David is haunted by tragedies—from his early life and in combat. Secrets threaten his nomination and call into question his moral judgment—dark secrets pushed to the outer reaches of his mind, two decades after he fought in Ramadi. Now his rampaging platoon sergeant faces trial for murder, threatening to unearth the past. Cornered, David is forced to relive his most painful nightmares and examine his integrity and relationships. But while war is the severest test of moral strength, secrets can erode the hardiest of souls. “The Ramadi Affair is a gripping story that effectively weaves together the conflicts in David Lawson’s present life with the anguish of his military service in Iraq. Barry Schaller has written a lightning paced novel that will keep you up late at night turning pages.” —Allan Topol, national bestselling author of The Washington Lawyer “Barry Schaller transports the reader with equal skill from the war-torn villages of Iraq to the highest halls of justice. A legal-thriller and contemporary war-novel in one, The Ramadi Affair is nearly impossible to put down.” —Dan Pope, author of Housebreaking “It’s about time someone wrote a novel that addresses the psychological consequences of our nation's recent adventures in Iraq. In this gripping tale, Schaller introduces us to a war veteran who returns home to a career of great promise, only to be betrayed by the ‘moral injury’ he suffered in the fight. Like so much of our greatest war literature, The Ramadi Affair is a fiction that rests on a disturbing truth.” —Todd Brewster, bestselling author of The Century and of Lincoln’s Gamble “With a life-long career in service to the people, the novelist Barry Schaller brings his readers a unique appreciation of the human condition.” —Justin Scott, author of thirty novels, including The Shipkiller, and coauthor with Clive Cussler of the Isaac Bell adventure series

explores the profound ethical and social consequences of today's biotechnical revolution. Almost every week brings news of novel methods for screening genes and testing embryos, choosing the sex and modifying the behavior of children, enhancing athletic performance, slowing aging, blunting painful memories, brightening mood, and altering basic temperaments. But we must not neglect the fundamental question: Should we be turning to biotechnology to fulfill our deepest human desires? We want better children -- but not by turning procreation into manufacture or by altering their brains to gain them an edge over their peers. We want to perform better in the activities of life -- but not by becoming mere creatures of chemistry. We want longer lives -- but not at the cost of becoming so obsessed with our own longevity that we care little about future generations. We want to be happy --

Better than Human

Is it right to use biomedical technologies to make us better than well or even perhaps better than human? Should we view our biology as fixed or should we try to improve on it? College students are already taking cognitive enhancement drugs. The U.S. army is already working to develop drugs and technologies to produce "super soldiers." Scientists already know how to use genetic engineering techniques to enhance the strength and memories of mice and the application of such technologies to humans is on the horizon. In Better Than Human, philosopher-bioethicist Allen Buchanan grapples with the ethical dilemmas of the biomedical enhancement revolution. Biomedical enhancements can make us smarter, have better memories, be stronger, quicker, have more stamina, live much longer, avoid the frailties of aging, and enjoy richer emotional lives. In spite of the benefits that biomedical enhancements may bring, many people instinctively reject them. Some worry that we will lose something important-our appreciation for what we have or what makes human beings distinctively valuable. Others assume that biomedical enhancements will only be available to the rich, with the result that social inequalities will worsen. Buchanan shows that the debate over enhancement has been distorted by false assumptions and misleading rhetoric. To think clearly about enhancement, we have to acknowledge that human nature is a mixed bag and that our species has many "design flaws." We should be open be open to the possibility of becoming better than human, while never underestimating the risks that our attempts to improve may back-fire.
