The most widely used medical ethics textbook today, Munson's INTERVENTION AND REFLECTION is a collection of the most up to date and influential articles addressing the most pressing contemporary debates in medical ethics. Also delivering a wide variety of timely and provocative cases for consideration, INTERVENTION AND REFLECTION provides you with the most comprehensive and authoritative introduction to the subject. The combination of the author's astute editing, a wide variety of cases provided alongside the social contexts in which they arise, and insightful commentaries makes this book accessible and provocative to students with no formal philosophical training as well as to students with more formal experience in philosophy and/or the medical professions.
