Babbitt, Susan E.
Conventional wisdom and commonsense morality tend to take the integrity of persons for granted. But for people in systematically unjust societies, self-respect and human dignity may prove to be impossible dreams. Susan Babbitt explores the implications of this insight, arguing that in the face of systemic injustice, individual and social rationality may require the transformation rather than the realization of deep-seated aims, interests, and values. In particular, under such conditions, she argues, the cultivation and ongoing exercise of moral imagination is necessary to discover and defend a more humane social vision. Impossible Dreams is one of those rare books that fruitfully combines discourses that were previously largely separate: feminist and antiracist political theory, analytic ethics and philosophy of mind, and a wide range of non-philosophical literature on the lives of oppressed peoples around the world. It is both an object lesson in reaching across academic barriers and a demonstration of how the best of feminist philosophy can be in conversation with the best of mainstream philosophyas well as affect the lives of real people. 242pp. N.B. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Corners slightly bumped.

Kantor, J. R.
This volume is a selection of papers representing the efforts of one student of psychology and of the history and analysis of science, to channel psychology towards the goal of natural science, and to urge that all the constructions of science (descriptions and interpretations) be derived exclusively from contacts with confronted things and events. As the earliest articles indicate, from his first professional concern with psychology, Dr. Kantor has been a reprobative witness of the spiral development of psychology from pure mentalism, through a behavioural era, and back to a modified mentalism. The author has chosen thirty-six papers that have been grouped into eleven sections, each covering important issues within the general scientific or specialised psychological domain. In every case the author's intention was to indicate the direction psychology and the other sciences should go in order to reach a naturalistic status. N.B. Small closed tear to bottom edge of rear D/J. 613pp.

Wertz, Dorothy C.; Fletcher, John C.
Dorothy Wertz and John Fletcher pioneered the first international study of ethical and social issues in genetics in 18 nations. This book reports and discusses their second and more representative study in 36 nations. The survey focused on actual situations that occur in the practice of medical genetics, presented as case vignettes that can also be used in teaching and policy discussion. Among the issues discussed are privacy, prenatal diagnosis, patient autonomy, directiveness in counseling, sex selection, forensic DNA banking, "genetic discrimination," and "eugenics". This is Dorothy Wertz's final book, as she died in April, 2003. It is a one of a kind cross-cultural study of complex ethical issues in the uses of genetic information. No one else has attempted to look at the international aspects of medical genetics on such a broad scale. The results provide a resource for discussion both within and among nations. Much bioethical and policy discussion now occurs in an information vacuum. The survey showed that what people would do, and their reasons for doing it, differed considerably from what ethicists think they "should" do. Many will be surprised at the results, especially in nations where bioethical discussion is just beginning. "Genetics and Ethics in Global Perspective" is of interest to medical geneticists, genetic counselors, social scientists and anthropologists who study cross-cultural issues, bioethicists and bioethics centers and health policy makers. 474pp.
