About the Author

Samuel H. LiPuma is an associate professor of philosophy at Cuyahoga Community where he has taught logic since 1991. He also taught logic at several northeast Ohio institutions, including Kent State University, Notre Dame College, and Lakeland Community College, among others. Joseph P. DeMarco is Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Cleveland State University


LiPuma and DeMarco boldly challenge us to consider end of life options that align with realities of medicine, palliative care, and social supports in the US today. Through riveting case studies and exploration of religious and secular thought, moral theory, and ethics, they propose a framework for broadening approaches to what they unapologetically acknowledge as "hastening death." Clinicians, educators, policy-makers, and the informed public must read this work. -- Kathryn L. Weise, MD, MA Bioethics
This book moves brilliantly between philosophy, clinical studies, and the analysis of medical cases taken from different jurisdictions. The authors firmly argue that as a matter of public policy the options for patients to hasten their death should be expanded, also to include PAS and euthanasia. For judging such requests, they present criteria that might do within American (medical) culture. -- Freddy Mortier, Professor of Ethics, Ghent University
