Arthur J. Dyck is Professor of Population Ethics at Harvard School of Public Health, and co-director of the Kennedy Interfaculty Program in Medical Ethics, Harvard University.
"Brilliantly defends the 700-year-old Anglo-American tradition of
law favoring life."
"This exceptionally cogent contribution to an often muddled debate defends legal prohibitions of physician-assisted suicide (PAS), while urging that 'comfort-only care' -- in which life-sustaining treatments may be discontinued -- should be available for terminally ill patients. Dyck displays a strong grasp of relevant issues in ethics, law, and political philosophy, and represents opposing views with scrupulous accuracy."
