Edge of Life, The
146 in stock
The Edge of Life tackles big issues such as Euthanasia, suicide, infanticide, living wills and more within the rugged ethical framework of the Judaeo-Christian doctrines & Hippocratic oath. Dr Ling’s conclusion is that modern medicine has lost its way because it has departed from its historic foundations & he calls for a return to the culture of life and the exercise of “principled compassion”. This intensely practical book will help the reader get to grip with, understand and respond to these edge-of-life issues. It is a book to help everyone to achieve that last and greatest of all human aspirations—how to die well.
