Robert D. Truog, "Is it Time to Abandon Brain Death?" Truog also advocates the
second option, namely the moral permissibility of killing innocent human beings,
but concedes, "The most difficult challenge for this proposal would be to gain
acceptance of the view that killing may sometimes be a justifiable necessity for
procuring transplantable organs" (p. 169). His point is that even with the
enforcement of ...

... I made a “revealing comment,” describing “bioethics as a field that relied
heavily on 'stories', even describing 'brain death' as a 'story'that bioethicists 'sold'
to the public. The implication is that I am one of these bioethicists who 'sold'the
idea of 'brain death' to the public, and here I let slip the truth about what my
colleagues and I are doing, which shows that our field has no intellectual integrity
. But as anyone who reads all of Rethinking Life and Death will soon discover, I

makes us want to live rather than not live, but also what attaches us to the
existence we have. Attachment to life needn't be imagined as being so strong that
it binds us even when (say) it is an existence that, other things being equal, we

ethical metaphysics. As opposed to understanding life in terms of being and the
anxiety imposed by time in the face of death, Levinas reads Kant's “

Rather than focusing on death as the end that structures thinking about life,
Levinas interprets the transcendental ideal as understanding experience as
going beyond death to possibility.
