Informed consent is a central topic in contemporary biomedical
ethics. Yet attempts to set defensible and feasible standards for
consenting have led to persistent difficulties. In Rethinking
Informed Consent in Bioethics Neil Manson and Onora O'Neill set
debates about informed consent in medicine and research in a fresh
light. They show why informed consent cannot be fully specific or
fully explicit, and why more specific consent is not always
ethically better. They argue that consent needs distinctive
communicative transactions, by which other obligations,
prohibitions, and rights can be waived or set aside in controlled
and specific ways. Their book offers a coherent, wide-ranging and
practical account of the role of consent in biomedicine which will
be valuable to readers working in a range of areas in bioethics,
medicine and law.
