    About The Book

    Ethics is commonly assumed to be the one realm in which luck and risk do not

    intrude. It has been said that ‘While one can be lucky in one’s business, in

    one’s married life, and in one’s health, one cannot, so it is commonly

    assumed, be subject to luck as far as one’s moral worth is concerned.’ But

    although we do not normally hold people responsible for outcomes beyond

    their control, a serious examination of the role of luck and risk may lead

    us to conclude that very few outcomes are really within people’s control.

    This is the paradox of ‘moral luck’.

    Risk and Luck in Medical Ethics examines the ‘moral luck’ paradox in greater

    detail, relating it to Kantian, consequentialist, and virtue-based

    approaches to ethics. Dickenson applies the paradoxes of risk and

    luck to medical ethics, including timely discussion of risk and luck in the

    allocation of scarce health care resources, informed consent to treatment,

    decisions about withholding life-sustaining treatment, psychiatry,

    reproductive ethics, genetic testing, and medical research and

    evidence-based medicine.

    The book concludes with an examination of the relevance of risk and luck in

    a medical context to the study of global ethics. If risk and luck are taken

    seriously, it would seem to follow that we cannot develop any definite moral

    standards at all, that we are doomed to moral relativism. However, Dickenson

    offers strong counter-arguments to this view that enable us to think in

    terms of universal standards for judging ethical systems. This claim has

    direct practical relevance for practitioners as well as philosophers.
