Product Description

by Dr. Avraham Steinberg, Translated by Dr. Fred Rosner.

Ethical issues in modern medicine are of great concern and interest to physicians and health-care providers throughout the world, as well as to the public at large. Jewish scholars and ethicists have discussed medical ethics throughout Jewish history, presenting their viewpoints in accordance with Jewish law and philosophy.

Fifteen years in the making, this all-encompassing, meticulously researched, comprehensive encyclopedia is a systematic, orderly and concise work on Jewish medical ethics. The author, acclaimed both as a Senior Pediatric Neurologist and as a Clinical Associate Professor in Medical Ethics, is active in various medical and ethical societies in both Israel and in the USA. He presents the recorded deliberations and decisions of past and present scholars, the comparative analysis of the Jewish and the general medical-ethical approaches to relevant topics, and halakhic background and intricacies.
