Stephen Napier's book cover, "Uncertain Bioethics: Moral Risk and Human Dignity"

Under what conditions is an individual justified to believe an act of killing is permissible? And are one’s opinions on lawful killings held with much more caution than one realizes? Associate Professor of Philosophy Stephen Napier, PhD, addresses these challenging questions in his new book Uncertain Bioethics: Moral Risk and Human Dignity.
