Concepts and Cases in Nursing Ethics is a case-based exploration of the core principles of health care ethics applied to nursing. The book is a collaboration between philosopher-ethicist Michael Yeo and nurse-ethicist and educators Anne Moorhouse, Pamela Khan, and Patricia Rodney. It thus combines philosophical and ethical analysis with extensive knowledge and experience in nursing and health care. The book is organized around six main concepts in health care ethics: beneficence, autonomy, truthfulness, confidentiality, justice, and integrity. A chapter is devoted to the elucidation of each of these concepts. In each chapter, historical background and conceptual analysis are supplemented by case studies that exemplify issues and show how the concept applies in health care and nursing practice. In this new edition, the conceptual analysis throughout has been updated and reworked in view of changes in the health care system. In addition, there is a new chapter specifically devoted to recent developments affecting nursing and other health professions. Previous case studies have been modified and new ones added to address current and emerging issues. Although the text focuses mainly on the social and political situation of nursing, the analysis has relevance also for medicine and the allied health professions, and indeed for anyone working in the health system.

Auf der Grundlage einer Feldstudie in einem internationalen Mathematikinstitut untersucht die Autorin die wissenschaftliche Arbeit und das kulturelle Selbstverständnis der Mathematiker. Ausgehend von Erkenntnissen der Wissenschaftssoziologie und Mathematikphilosophie beschreibt sie den Prozess der mathematischen Entdeckung und zeigt auf, über welche Verfahren Mathematiker Einigung erzielen. Ein höchst spannendes Buch für Mathematiker, Soziologen und Wissenschaftsphilosophen. UMSCHLAGTEXT: Das vorliegende Buch ist die erste wissenschaftssoziologische Studie, die sich der Kultur der Mathematik von innen her nähert. Auf der Grundlage einer Feldstudie und ausführlichen Interviews untersucht Bettina Heintz die epistemischen Praktiken und das kulturelle Selbstverständnis der Mathematiker.
