Life's Dominion

Life's Dominion provides an in-depth critical analysis on the abortion and euthanasia debate, from the perspective of one of the world's greatest jurisprudential legal philosophers, Professor Ronald Dworkin. Dworkin breaks down this complex debate, into clearly identifiable and distinct ideas or conceptions, in which he provides a clear persuasive argument, and highlights how these sensitive issues are not based on dissimilar premises, but are rather founded upon the respect which the human species have for the sanctity of life, although their interpretations thereof, may differ in nature.
