From dawn till dusk: Bioethical insights into the beginning and the end of life

“Evangelos D. Protopapadakis’ book is a philosophically rich discussion of major topics in bioethics about issues of life and death. The work is original and important.  I believe the author is correct to argue that the central issues of bioethics at its core in these areas should be understood as moral in nature and should not be framed as principally legal or scientific.”

Tom L. Beauchamp, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Georgetown University

“This book brings contemporary issues in bioethics into conversation with different philosophical views, both ancient and modern. The result is a rewarding and very readable discussion on a range of important questions about life and death.”

Peter Singer, Princeton University & University of Melbourne

“Bioethics is – in philosophical terms – a new field. But it builds on centuries of thought on the human condition, the meaning of life, and the fundamental ethical question: What should we do? Evangelos D. Protopapadakis’ masterful volume traces modern bioethical debates, with all their increasing scientific complexity, back through ancient and modern philosophical thought. The result is a sparkling and engaging journey through the history of ideas and the current ethical challenges at the beginning and end of life.”

Julian Savulescu, Uehiro Chair in Practical Ethics, University of Oxford

“As the Head of the Greek Unit of the Chair, but also as an ethicist and a bioethicist, Professor Protopapadakis has never been weary to contribute to philosophically nuanced bioethical debates. This inspiring book is the manifestation of his attitude towards Bioethics.”

Amnon Carmi, Holder of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics (Haifa)

“This book presents important connections between current positions and classical approaches in ethics, written in a lively way.”

Hans-Werner Ingensiep, Universität Duisburg-Essen

Κλωνοποίηση και Βιοηθική

Ο μόνος τρόπος να ανακαλύψουμε τα όρια του εφικτού, έγραψε κάποτε ο Arthur C. Clarke, είναι να τα υπερβούμε αναζητώντας το ανέφικτο. Αυτό φαντάζει απόλυτα ταιριαστό στην σύγχρονη Γενετική γενικώς, και ιδιαίτερα στην πλέον προβεβλημένη αλλά και περισσότερο διαφιλονικούμενη δυνατότητά της, την κλωνοποίηση ανθρώπων.
