The Concept of Person in a World
Mediated by Meaning and Constituted by Significance I Alan J. Kearns (2007)
About this book
the world of health care today, advancements in technology have enabled the
life of a patient in a persistent vegetative state to be prolonged. This
raises ethical questions such as when we morally ought to, or ought not to,
assist a patient to live or to die. In these difficult situations, the
concept of person can act as a benchmark for deciding whom to include and
whom not to include in the moral domain. However, the problem with some
concepts is that they tend to exclude a large number of human beings.
This book provides a philosophical and ethical analysis regarding how some
concepts of person tend to end up being more exclusive than inclusive.
