This book brings together the debate concerning personal identity in metaphysics and central topics in biomedical ethics conception of birth and death; autonomy, living wills and paternalism.

Personal Identity as a Principle of Biomedical Ethics
What justifies our holding one person over another morally responsible for a past action? Why am I justified in having a special prudential concern for one particular future person over all others? Why do many of us think that maximizing the good within a single life is perfectly acceptable, but maximizing the good across lives is wrong? For these and other normative questions, it looks like any answer we come up with will have to make essential reference to personal identity. So, for instance, it seems we are justified in holding X responsible for some past action only if X is identical to the person who performed that action.

It is suggested that the diagnosis may be therapeutically helpful for some other disturbances, including anorexia, even if it does not carry the strong metaphysical moral that some have supposed. The cases are of interest to philosophers as they purport to represent "real -life" difficulties for standard theories of "personal identity.

Although there are many excellent texts dealing with the metaphysics of personal identity, Shoemaker's Personal Identity and Ethics is the first book I know to tackle in such an extended way the question of the relationship between personal identity and our practical concerns. It is a very welcome addition to the philosophical literature. While even experts on the subject of personal identity will undoubtedly learn something new from this rich discussion, I expect the book's primary use will be in undergraduate and perhaps graduate classes, and its exceptionally clear presentation of some very thorny issues makes it an excellent choice for this purpose.
