(p.254) Conclusion
Jewish Biomedical Law

Daniel B. Sinclair

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the discussions in the preceding chapters and presents some concluding thoughts from the author. This book explores some of the extra-legal dimensions of Jewish biomedical law, i.e., the relationship between morality and law, the influence of science upon the halakhah, and the growing awareness and implementation of patient autonomy. It argues that whereas the moral dimension has long been recognized as a part of the halakhah in this area, the influence of science upon the law has only become a major issue in modern times, and concern with the role of autonomy in Jewish medical law is a very recent development indeed.

Keywords:   Jewish biomedical law, morality, halakhah, autonomy
