Summary note:
"Standing on Principles collects Tom Beauchamp's most important essays in what might be called meta-bioethics: essays on the history, the nature, and the methodology of bioethics. The book is not about the various moral controversies and dilemmas that plague biomedical researchers, physicians, health care professionals, and policy makers - the standard fare of bioethics. Rather this book illuminates those controversies and dilemmas by analyzing moral principles, theories, and methods."--BOOK JACKET.
