Dying With Dignity: Questions and More Questions - The Philosophical Perspective
Most moral issues require slow thinking because the issues are complex and rarely amenable to black and white decision making. There is currently concern with the medical, ethical and legal issues associated with treatment options for people suffering at the end stage of their lives. The down side is that most serious thinkers are also busy people. Thus, the opportunity to take time out like this is an all too rare event.
