Opis: Ethics, Moral Life and the Body - Rhonda Shaw

What kinds of contributions can sociologists make to debates about ethics? What makes sociological investigation of morality and ethical issues distinct from philosophical concerns? Is there a place for a separate subfield within the discipline of sociology that deals specifically with questions of ethics and morality? This book places these questions on the sociological agenda. The first part of the book addresses the 'ethical turn' in sociology, and includes chapters on defining ethics and morality, lay understandings of ethics, sociological accounts of moral life, and the relation of sociology to bioethics. These chapters examine alternative conceptions to mainstream discussions regarding embodiment and ethics. The book provides insight into both recent debates in the humanities and social sciences about the circulation and transfer of bodily fluids, tissues, and organs, and the gift-exchange, reciprocity practices, and institutions that make these body economies possible. 'In her compelling and original book, Rhonda Shaw points to the important ways sociology extends the professional and philosophical conversation about the ethics of donating the parts and products of our bodies: organs, ova, and breast milk. Her research makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of the moral dimensions of our embodied and social selves.' -Raymond De Vries, University of Michigan, US '[This book] provides a very impressive analysis of issues that should be at the centre of social inquiry. Drawing on an extensive range of social scientific and philosophical analysis, as well as a body of innovative empirical research, she has conducted over a number of years, Shaw has produced a book that deserves to be widely read.' -Barry Smart, University of Portsmouth, UK 'Whereas bioethics is criticized all too often for responding to ethical quandaries only after technological innovations become routine, Rhonda Shaw demonstrates the power of sociological inquiry in anticipating the complexity and, at times, slipperiness of the morality of medicalization's proliferation. In the best tradition of sociomedical scholarship, Shaw underscores the body's significance as a key site of inquiry, her work grounded in three sites of technological intervention: organ donation, reproduction, and breast milk exchange. This is an engaging, insightful, and masterful work.' Lesley A. Sharp, Columbia University, USIntroduction 1. Defining Ethics And Morality 2. Moral Judgement And Embodied Ethics 3. Sociology And Morality 4. Sociology And Bioethics 5. Organ And Tissue Donation 6. Assisted Human Reproduction 7. Breast Milk Sharing And Exchange Closing Remarks: Ethics And Doing Sociology
