About the Book :

The present book seeks and undertakes very clearly to deliberate, and explain primarily what Bio-Ethics is, and what are the various dimensions of Bio-Ethical discipline, both as philosophy and science? Some of the most glaringly contro-versial Bio-Ethical issues hover round it are – like, Euthanasia, Abortion, Cloning, Female Foeticide, Surrogacy, Doctor-Patient Relationship, Bio-technology and Ageing (in its East-West Perspectives) which raise a storm over a cup of tea, some such unwieldy questions not only of ethics/morality, but also pose questions of individual and social morality, responsibility, accountability, liability, liberty etc., about the kind, quality and sanctity of life one wishes to live, that cannot be forcibly silenced arbitrarily without proper logic of conviction, consistency, transparency and openness, which if not answered would result into social disquiet, disequilibrium and anarchy.
