Description
As the term "family values" achieves prominence in the rhetoric of political debate, the social issues at the heart of today's political controversies deserve to be studied in depth. This volume brings together a group of philosophers, political scientists, & legal scholars to explore a wide range of specific topics dealing with the legal, ethical, & political dimensions of familial relationships. Topics addressed include the rights of unwed fathers, the nature of children's autonomy, children's rights to divorce their parents, parental rights with respect to medical treatment & religious education of children, surrogate parenting, same-sex parenting, & single-parent families. Collectively, the essays point out that many contemporary issues pertaining to the having & raising of children pose genuinely hard choices for public policy makers, for those who make & enforce the laws, & for citizens who would like to engage in informed & critical democratic debate on these issues. Contributors are Anita Allen, Brenda Almond, Julia J. Bartkowiak, Ellen K. Feder, Shelley A. M. Gavigan, Hugh LaFollette, Uma Narayan, Lynn Pasquerella, Laura M. Purdy, Mary Lyndon Shanley, & Iris Young.
