Book Overview

Through an analysis of traditional Jain texts and contemporary voices of practicing Jains, Donaldson and Bajzelj provide important insights from within Jainism to bioethical discussions. Additionally, when read by healthcare professionals, this work can contribute to their understanding of the increasingly diverse patient population within their care.--Swasti Bhattacharyya, author of Magical Progeny, Modern Technology: A Hindu Bioethics of Assisted Reproductive Technology

Insistent Life fills a scholarly gap by presenting a comprehensive review of the ethical and medical views of Jainism and how they apply to contemporary bioethics. Undoubtedly, this treatment will be welcomed by religious scholars and scholars of Jainism in particular. Donaldson and Bajzelj also offer an interesting perspective for bioethicists working with and/or within the Buddhist tradition. Delving into the differences between related Jain and Buddhist perspectives offers potentially new insight into each other's perspectives. And for religious bioethicists of other traditions, the book offers another voice to be heard.--David E. Guinn, editor of Handbook of Bioethics and Religion
