Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 041591910X, Paperback)

Narratives have always played a prominent role in both bioethics and medicine; the fields have attracted much storytelling, ranging from great literature to humbler stories of sickness and personal histories. All bioethicists work with cases - from court cases that shape policy matters to case studies that chronicle sickness. But how useful are these various narratives for sorting out moral matters? What kind of ethical work can stories do and what are the limits to this work? The essays in this volume offer reflections on the relationship between narratives and ethics.
