This casebook begins by defining an ethical “community” and membership within that community, follows with the role of the individual, focuses then on the patient / provider relationship, and closes with bioethical choices. This structure permits arranging the usual issues in a context familiar to ethicists such as Locke and Rawls, but unusual amount bioethics casebooks. The essential premise is that humans must exist in relation to each other, and do so as biological beings. The central questions then are: how do we assert and respect ourselves as individuals and what claims do our communities have upon us?
