520    In this concise and accessible introductory text, Gómez-
       Lobo and Keown introduce a "human goods" approach to 
       bioethics as an alternative to the dominant principle-
       based method in the field (best illustrated by Beauchamp 
       and Childress, Principles of Biomedical Ethics, OUP). 
       Following Aristotle and the natural law tradition, the 
       authors demonstrate how an emphasis on human goods--such 
       as health, life, family, friendship, work and play, the 
       experience of beauty, knowledge, and integrity--provides a
       necessary context for medical decisions and can help us 
       understand critical issues at the beginning and end of 
       life. The manuscript includes two parts: Foundations and 
       Issues. In the Foundations section the authors explain how
       one can think about bioethics, offering definitions of 
       ethics and ontology (the study of being) and prudential 
       reasoning. In the Issues section they address genetics, 
       abortion, infanticide, suicide and physician-assisted 
       suicide, nutrition and hydration, and transplantation 
       ethics. The book includes appendices featuring personal 
       statements by Gómez-Lobo on the status of the human embryo
       and criteria for the determination of death
