Living and Dying Well takes an informed, interdisciplinary approach to the problems, data, theory, and procedures that a just society must consider when establishing policies regarding human life and death. Leading psychologist Lewis Petrinovich expands on the controversial arguments developed in his earlier work, Human Evolution, Reproduction, and Morality, and considers such contemporary issues as: the morality of human genetic screening and of the Human Genome Project; organ transplants; the allowance of suicide and euthanasia; and physicians assisting in the dying process.
