DEDICATED TO ALL MEDICAL STUDENTS AROUND THE WORLD The happiest of individuals are those who assist people in their quest for a healthy living and harmony. Medical Ethics as a subject consists of... More > the fundamental issues of practical decision-making, and its major concerns include the nature of ultimate value and the standards by which human actions can be judged right or wrong. We often refer to ethical judgments, or ethical principles where it once would have been more common to speak of moral judgments or moral principles. Strictly speaking, the term of Medical Ethics refers to the field of study, or branch of inquiry, that has morality as its subject matter. Although ethics has always been viewed as a branch of philosophy, its all-embracing practical nature links it with many other areas of study, including anthropology, biology, medicine, economics, history, politics, psychology, sociology, and theology.< Less

More > revelations of the enlightened. Robert M. Ellis has been developing a universal philosophy of the Middle Way. Here he applies this approach to issues of practical ethics. The Middle Way is a practical approach to ethics which avoids the delusions of either affirming or denying metaphysical beliefs. Instead, we live better by addressing conditions in our experience more fully. Practical moral issues provide a good opportunity to see this approach at work. This book challenges established metaphysical assumptions on issues as diverse as sex, war, abortion, vegetarianism and pornography, to ask what our experience really tells us about right moral judgements, when we get beyond the dogmas.< Less

This book argues for the extermination of entire populations within infected areas following a utilitarian approach to protect lives of those in non-infected areas during CODE-RED. CODE-RED is a... More > hypothetical public health situation involving an outbreak of a highly virulent and extremely infectious pandemic, when quarantine is deemed ineffective, there is no vaccine, prophylaxis or cure available and exterminating the ‘infected population’ (Redzonians) is the only viable solution. The question of extermination is sensitive, controversial and emotive, requiring an impartial and impersonal approach to facilitate necessary but agonising decision making. On the question of justice and rights, it explores the principle of self-defence as justification for extermination, taking into account that the Redzonians are not responsible for the contagion and the Variants (the uninfected within the ‘infected’ zones) are innocent bystanders.< Less
