Beschreibung

This book is an assault on the notion that it is empirically accurate and legally and philosophically satisfactory to see humans as atomistic entities. It contends that our welfare is inextricably entangled with that of others, and accordingly law and ethics, in determining our best interests, should recognise the central importance of relationality, the performance of obligations, and (even apparently injurious) altruism.

Provocative and controversial questioning of the established way of looking at welfare/best interests

Obvious practical relevance to family and medical lawyers, and of interest to professional philosophers, those interested in the history of ideas, and general readers

Accessibly and engagingly written, with swashbuckling contempt for technical jargon



Inhalt
1. Introduction.- 2. Altruism and Community: A Biological and Philosophical History.- 3. Rethinking the Welfare and Best Interest Principles.- 4. What Do the Courts Do?.- 5. Putting it Into Practice.
