As a text for a class (biomedical ethics), we didn't finish the entirety of this book. The selections were mostly well-rounded for each topic and section. I only give it a four-star because I found it hard to comprehend as I have no background in philosophy/philosophical readings, but perhaps someone who has better grasp of it, or the companion book would better comprehend the sometimes convoluted essays inside.
