 Issues in S and T, Summer 1998, Bioethics for everyone
(Caplan, in fact, has written one of the better essays on this subject.) The worst suspicion is that ethicists are little more than sophists, spinmeisters whose major expertise is in articulating clever arguments to support their personal views, which are ultimately as subjective as anyone else's.
Part of Caplan's success as an educator is his firm grasp of all these elements and his ability to collect critical thinking from experts in those fields and weave them into a coherent essay.
Caplan does a remarkable job of explaining the issues in a balanced way, conveying the complexity, and offering a sensible political justification for the status quo.
