Bringing Life to Ethics continues in the tradition of Michael W. Fox's lifelong inquiry into values, social and personal relationships, and the treatment of animals, the environment, and each other. Fox, the popular nationally syndicated columnist of "Ask the Animal Doctor", uses the compass of global bioethics in this book--humility, responsibility, interdisciplinary and intercultural competence, and compassion--to counter technological, ecological, and value threats by pointing in the direction of a humane and sustainable society. Not intended to further the scholarly debate over what constitutes ethics, Fox brings ethics into our personal and professional lives. He shows how bioethics has immediate relevance and applicability to a wide range of public and private enterprises.
Michael W. Fox is a graduate veterinarian from the Royal Veterinary College, London, England, with doctoral degrees in medicine and in ethology/animal behavior from the University of London, England. Formerly an associate professor of psychology at Washington University, St. Louis, Dr. Fox has worked full-time in the animal rights and protection movement for the past thirty years, applying science and ethics to improve the treatment and status of animals in society. In addition to his nationally syndicated newspaper column, he has authored more than forty books on animal behavior, rights, welfare, and conservation, including most recently, The Boundless Circle: Caring for Creatures and Creation and Beyond Evolution: The Genetically Altered Future of Plants, Animals, the Earth...and Humans.
