Autonomy and Trust in Bioethics 2000–2001

Onora O'Neill

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Autonomy and Trust in Bioethics explores the complex issues of autonomy and trust in the modern life as they apply to medicine, science, biotechnologies and the impact that these fields have on a variety of people, both those working in those fields and those who work with them. Individual autonomy and related concepts that figure so prominently in modern bioethical discussions are compared in many ways, both philosophically and ethically, to issues of trust and how autonomy and trust may or may not be compatible under certain views of the responsibilities and obligations of medicinal, scientific and biotechnological advances.
