The impressive advances in medical technology in the last half-century have helped to save thousands of lives that would have been lost due to organ failures. However, the use of this technology in clinically irreversible settings can result in the undue delay of the death process.Throughout its chapters, this book highlights the various facets of the controversial ethical dilemma of the end of life. It provides a historical background to this discussion, its philosophical underpinnings, and the perspectives of various religions on this journey along treatment obstinacy. The book helps the reader to see and understand this problem from a holistic perspective, and to apprehend other major questions about life and death. It is a book to be read by all those who are concerned with death in modern societies and particularly with medical ethics and professional conduct.
