About "To Relieve the Human Condition"
This book argues that standard forms of bioethics support the technological utopian quest of medicine: to eliminate suffering and bring the body under the rule of our choices and desires. This quest raises urgent ethical questions rarely addressed in the dominant approaches to bioethics. McKenny puts forth an alternative agenda, arguing that the task of bioethics is to explore the moral significance of the body as it is expressed in the discourse and practice of moral and religious traditions.
