Autonomy, Responsibility, and Health Care: Critical Reflections

We want to convince you that eBooks are not only less-expensive and more portable (desktop, laptop, iPhone, Kindle, SmartPhone, eReader, etc.) than printed books, but, if carefully crafted, they can also be very easy and comfortable to read on a normal sized screen. All our eBooks display by default two pages at a time (like when you read a "normal" book), are DRM-free, and use typefaces that are perfect for long-time reading. You can thus always have with you the electronic library of academic works either for quick reference or for thorough study. Enjoy!

Eugen Huzum, The Principle of Responsibility for Illness and its Application in the Allocation of Health Care: A Critical Analysis


We come across an era of strong and even more unusual individual claims, while the solution to often conflicting demands becomes increasingly elusive and parochial. One of the most intriguing philosophical questions is how to link human responsibility to those consequences of action which no one can fully foresee but, nevertheless, which no one can afford to neglect. Many biotechnological challenges are of this nature. This book is meant to give some insights in the mutual justification which ought to regulate the space between autonomy and responsibility by taking up a stance on some dilemmatic issues in the medical field.
