About the Author

Henk ten Have is Director of the Center for Healthcare Ethics at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, US.


"Global bioethics is eloquent in its critique of the moral myopia of main stream bioethics and is a must for any reader seriously concerned with the role bioethics should play in the face of globalization."-Jan Helge Solbakk, University of Oslo, Norway

"Unlike other authors of the Northern hemisphere, the meaning of bioethics for Henk ten Have goes beyond the biomedical field. The inclusion in the framework proposed by the author of topics related to health care, social inclusion and preservation of the environment provides a new historical mark that puts this book in the pleasant academic surprises of this early 21st century." -Volnei Garrafa, University of Brasilia, Brazil "A comprehensive and penetrating account of how Bioethics could be extended to become Global Bioethics through an ambitious and visionary ethical and multi-disciplinary discourse. Addressing biological, social, political and ecological determinants of health from bio-centric and eco-centric perspectives is offered as a new bridge towards sustainable improvement in the health of people and our planet."-Solomon Benatar, University of Cape Town, South Africa; University of Toronto, Canada
