Islamic Perspectives On The Principles Of Biomedical Ethics Hardback
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.
