Summary

This updated and expanded second edition analyzes thecurrent literature regarding various ethical issues.Aldous Huxleyrs"s 1932 book Brave New World foresees a worldin which technological advances have obliterated morality andfreedom. John Feinberg and Paul Feinberg, in the first edition ofEthics for a Brave New World, noted how Huxley landed frighteninglyclose to the truth. Their book responded to ethical crises such asabortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, and genetic engineeringby looking to Scripture for principles to guide us through themoral quagmires of our time.Now dramatically updated and expanded, this edition of Ethicsfor a Brave New World seeks to maintain the relevance, rigorousscholarship, and biblical faithfulness of the first edition. Whilemany of the topics covered in the book remain the same, JohnFeinberg has revised each chapter to keep it current withcontemporary trends and to respond to the most recent scholarship.There is a new chapter on stem cell research and greatly expandedmaterial on issues such as homosexuality and genetic engineering.This important resource will be a valuable guide for students andthose seeking answers to ethical dilemmas.
