Daniel writes "An announcement for "Being Human: Readings from the President's Council on Bioethics" is available. According to the press release "It contains 95 selections from sources as wide-ranging as Homer, Tolstoy, Shakespeare, American folk songs, contemporary fiction and poetry, and even a screenplay. Each selection is accompanied by an introduction that directs readers toward its bioethical implications, and provides questions for groups reading together or individuals studying alone."It will be distributed to all 1043 Federal Depository Libraries. I've heard that it may not be available on-line owing to the copyrighted nature of some of the readings.Looks like it will be a helpful addition to libraries interested in hot issues of bioethics."
