The 2018 edition is updated and expanded throughout, reflecting the most current state of the law. New material in the 2018 edition includes:<br /><br />• New discussion of the “functional equivalent” test regarding whether the privilege applies to communications between independent contractors working for a company and the company’s lawyer<br /><br />• New discussion of whether emails that an employee sends to his or her attorney using his or her employer’s system are confidential<br /><br />• Updated guidance on preventing waiver of the privilege when privileged documents are inadvertently produced during discovery, using mechanisms provided by Federal Rule of Evidence 502

<p><em>Race, Rights, and Justice</em> explores questions of the nature of law and constitutional interpretation, international law and global justice, and the nature, function, and importance of rights each from a perspective that takes seriously the realities of race and racism. After a critical assessment of various contemporary theories of law is provided, a new theory of legal interpretation is set forth and defended. The respective words of Immanuel Kant and H.L.A. Hart on the possibility and desirability of international law are carefully explicated. Following this, <em>Race, Rights, and Justice</em> defends John Rawls' Law of Peoples from the cosmopolitan liberal critique of it. The nature and importance of rights, both individual and collective, are clarified while correcting some political philosophies that have propagated confused rhetoric about rights. And the collective right to humanitarian intervention is investigated philosophically in terms of the recent problems in Colombia, with surprisingly original results. While the methodology of this book is thoroughly analytical, philosophically speaking, some of the conclusions drawn are substantially original, infusing the facts of race and racism into mainstream matters of philosophy of law.</p><br /><p>"In this collection of essays, J. Angelo Corlett continues his important work of bringing the perspective of indigenous peoples, and more generally of race, into mainstream philosophical debates about justice and rights. Corlett's book also has very valuable insights into the nature of international law that will greatly enrich our contemporary debates." (Larry May, Washington University in St. Louis, USA)</p><br /><p>"Angelo Corlett is a prolific writer whose work is invariably stimulating, provocative, and insightful. Race, Rights, and Justice is an important addition to the oeuvre. Corlett is not afraid to tackle big problems, and big names. See, for example, his scathing criticisms of Bork and Scalia on constitutional interpretation." (Burleigh T. Wilkins, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA)</p>

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Bioethics and the Law takes a multidisciplinary approach that combines legal discussion with jurisprudential, philosophical, and sociological materials. Strong expressions of different points of view highlight debates about bioethical issues. The text underscores the need to mediate between the law's focus on broad rules and the bioethicist's concern with context and detail. Students are required to consider the ethical implications of health care as a business, face the shifting parameters of the provider/patient relationship in healthcare, and understand the role of government in designing and implementing healthcare programs such as Medicaid and Medicare. Bioethics and the Law supplements the traditional focus of bioethics on the interest of the individual with a second focus on the socio-economic developments that shape healthcare. Connecting broad public healthcare issues to concerns of the individual patient/healthcare consumer, the text promotes understanding of unsettling and complex situations and shows the implications of bioethical developments for understandings of personhood. A helpful glossary defines basic terms and several short appendices summarize recent developments in science and technology.</p><p>The Third Edition offers in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists. Separate sections are devoted to issues related to individuals and those related primarily to communities. A significantly expanded discussion of access to health care explores the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the debate about its constitutionality as well as new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics. A new chapter on privacy and essentialism focuses on bioethical questions occasioned by genetic information and neuroimaging. There is new consideration of discrimination in health care as well as new material on its business aspects.</p><p>Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents:<ul><li>in-depth examination of new questions and debates among health care professionals, lawyers, and bioethicists</li><li>separate sections on issues related to individuals and those related to communities</li><li> significantly expanded discussion of access to health care<ul><li>the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and debate about its constitutionality</li><li>new material on the social determinants of health and global health ethics</li>,</ul><li> a new chapter on privacy and essentialism, focusing on bioethical questions around genetic information and neuroimaging</li><li>consideration of discrimination in health care</li><li>new material on the business aspects of health care</li></ul></p>

Or even worse than that?<br /></strong>Maybe the promotion didn’t come out as expected. Perhaps your girlfriend or husband has just dumped you, moved out and took the cat too? Or maybe your dad, who loved you more than anything, has just passed away —heart attack - out of the blue! <br />Maybe your dog ate the homework again, the class is in five minutes, and that’s your lame excuse, but you’re stuck with it—tough situation.<br />Maybe it’s that there’s no particular reason at all. <strong>You’re just down, once again. Life isn’t serving what you want</strong>. Nobody does what you want them to do. And what’s the point anyway?<br /><br />Of course, you might be a relatively well adjusted human being. Someone who is adventurous and ready for the next challenge, to take life to the next level. If so, <strong>stoicism has the answers for everyone.<br /></strong><br />Stoicism is an ancient philosophy that’s enjoying a wide resurgence of interest in recent years, a philosophy that emphasizes practical application to actual human lives. <u>Stoicism not only helps explain why the world is in the way it is but it also  clearly shows how one might live in that world</u>, how to make some excellent lemonade from all those lemons that life has given to you.<br /><br />Stoicism For Beginners takes you through basic ideas of Stoic life, shows you specific and concrete steps that you can take to build an unshakeable edifice for your life, a life lived at its deepest and most meaningful levels. Bad days have reached their end.<br />Best of all, Stoic principles are entirely consistent with the teachings of virtually all worldwide faiths. Stoics are Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, atheist, and agnostic. There’s even a giant convention, Stoicon, that has rapidly grown into an event that attracts tens of thousands of Stoic practitioners from all over the world. Something is happening. Those ancient Greeks and Romans were really onto something.<br />The basic Stoic ideas are, in fact, spiritual concepts that all the world’s prominent faiths build upon. Stoicism assembles these ideas into a coherent program that brings its practitioners to a deeper understanding of themselves and that unruly world in which they live in. <br /></p><p>It’s a philosophy that doesn’t come to some abstract conclusions and just leaves it there. What knowledge is good if I can’t put it into practice? Imagine having a guest, giving him or her an empty cup, pointing to some lemons and having him to make something out of it? Well, stoic practice gives you a cup full of delicious lemonade that will transform your life.</p><h3><strong>Scroll to the top of the page and click the "buy now" button!</strong></h3><p><br /></p>

Aristotle (384–322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."<br /><br />Contents:<br /><br />Part 1: Logic (Organon)<br />Categories, translated by E.

<p>When <em>Legal Ethics in the Practice of Law</em> was first published in 1995, it was believed to be the first core-course law school text written by practicing lawyers. It took a practice-oriented, problem-infused approach to the discipline of legal ethics, covering subjects that had not been part of the regular PR curriculum. Today, in its fifth edition, this text continues to break new ground and includes specialized manuals specifically designed for clinical professors and externship teachers.</p><br /><p>The 2019 edition of <em>Legal Ethics: Rules, Statutes, and Comparisons</em> can be used as a supplement to the casebook. </p>
