Product Details


Praise for Hilde and James Lindemann Nelson’s previous book, The Patient in the Family: An Ethics of Medicine and Families:

"This is a pioneering work…The Nelsons write clear, untechnical prose with an uncommonly fine eye for detail, and the case descriptions are superb."
–John Hardwig, East Tennessee State University

"Their critique of the current dogmas that tend to guide medical decision-making in the care of incompetent patients is very powerful. This is a clearly written, accessible book that will play a prominent role in subsequent discussions of health care ethics."
–Susan Sherwin, Dalhousie University
