In breve

Today the law bridges the legislative void in relation to the end of life, while the role of ethics seems to become less significant in the effort to highlight the compliance of science with the problems and objectives of human existence. Some of the possible answers to these themes as well as Advance Treatment Directives are presented in this volume.

Presentazione del volume

Both health-care professionals and academics have yet to reach a common ground on the topic of the end-of-life. Politics which normally deals with diverging social claims and struggles to meet social "consensus", does not take a clear-cut position on issues referring to the fundamental right to life, health and human dignity. The law bridges the legislative void in relation to the end of life, while the role of ethics seems to become less significant in the effort to highlight the compliance of science with the problems and objectives of human existence.
Some of the possible answers to these themes as well as Advance Treatment Directives are presented in this volume. They are considered from different perspectives and moral approaches, in a society that is characterised by an increasing number of preferences, life-styles but also of social uncertainties. It expresses a new concept of subjectivity and claims, on the basis of a new autonomistic rationalism, more individualism, more freedom and more self-determination in all the spheres of life.
