Rethinking Theory in Bioethics

Abstract: This book review essay points to some of the more novel and controversial contributions of A Theory of Bioethics, by Joseph Millum and David DeGrazia (Cambridge University Press, 2021), such as their account of moral status. With a remarkable breadth of topics, the book is characterized by philosophical care and nuance and by spelling out the implications of the authors’ theorizing for real-world, pressing questions, for instance, about the implications of Millum and DeGrazia’s theoretical work on moral status for embryo research, animal research with mice and apes, and human-brain organoids.
