Summary
"What is the role of feelings in the euthanasia debate? This is the central question William F. Sullivan asks in Eye of the Heart, a unique philosophical and ethical exploration of the euthanasia issue. Employing the principles and techniques of the Canadian theologian and thinker Bernard Lonergan, Sullivan offers a concrete examination of the role of feelings in grasping moral values and the important part that feelings play in ethical decision- making. The heart has its reasons, he argues, which bioethicists, philosophers and legal scholars all need to know."--Jacket
