The Ethical Canary free pdf Every day we hear news about medical or scientific breakthroughs and the complex ethical issues they raise. Feats that were never before possible, including cloning, genetically modifying food, mapping human chromosomes, and using animal organs for human transplants, have opened up a Pandora's Box of ethical questions. Technology is advancing at such rate that the issue is not so much what we can do but rather whether we will do it.

"The Ethical Canary" is a major contribution to the debate about the hottest issues in ethics today, from one of the world's leading authorities.
