Islamic Perspectives On The Principles Of Biomedical Ethics, Hardback Book

Islamic Perspectives On The Principles Of Biomedical Ethics Hardback

Edited by Mohammed (Hamad Bin Khalifa Univ, Qatar) Ghaly

Part of the Intercultural Dialogue In Bioethics series


Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics presents results from a pioneering seminar in 2013 between Muslim religious scholars, biomedical scientists, and Western bioethicists at the research Center for Islamic Legislation & Ethics, Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies.

By examining principle-based bioethics, the contributors to this volume addressed a number of key issues related to the future of the field.

Discussion is based around the role of religion in bioethical reasoning, specifically from an Islamic perspective.

Also considered is a presentation of the concept of universal principles for bioethics, with a response looking at the possibility (or not) of involving religion.

Finally, there is in-depth analysis of how far specific disciplines within the Islamic tradition - such as the higher objectives of Sharia (maqasid al-Shari'ah) and legal maxims (qawa'id fiqhiyah) - can enrich principle-based bioethics.
