Drawing on a wide range of primary historical and sociological sources and employing sharp philosophical analysis, this book investigates medical ethics from a Chinese-Western comparative perspective. In doing so, it offers a fascinating exploration of both cultural differences and commonalities exhibited by China and the West in medicine and medical ethics. The book carefully examines a number of key bioethical issues in the Chinese socio-cultural context including: attitudes toward foetuses; disclosure of information by medical professionals; informed consent; professional medical ethics; health promotion; feminist bioethics; and human rights. It not only provides insights into Chinese perspectives, but also sheds light on the appropriate methods for comparative cultural and ethical studies. Through his pioneering study, Jing-Bao Nie has put forward a theory of "trans-cultural bioethics," an ethical paradigm which upholds the primacy of morality whilst resisting cultural stereotypes, and appreciating the internal plurality, richness, dynamism and openness of medical ethics in any culture. Medical Ethics in China will be of particular interest to students and academics in the fields of Medical Law, Bioethics, Medical Ethics, Cross-Cultural Ethics as well as Chinese/Asian Studies and Comparative Cross-Cultural Studies.

"Beim Bau der Chinesischen Mauer" ist ein von Franz Kafka im März 1917 handschriftlich notierter Text, der nach seinem Tod aus den hinterlassenen Schriften extrahiert und als Erzählung herausgegeben wurde. Er schildert die Hinwendung des kollektiven Volkes an den Bau der Großen Mauer und deren Mystifizierung. Außerdem werden eine fast allwissende Führerschaft und ein sehr fernes Kaisertum skizziert. Eingebettet in den Text ist eine Passage, die Kafka als eigenständige Geschichte namens "Eine kaiserliche Botschaft" im September 1917 in der Zeitschrift Selbstwehr und 1920 im Rahmen des Erzählungsbandes "Ein Landarzt" bereits selbst veröffentlicht hatte. Unter dem Titel "Beim Bau der chinesischen Mauer" hat Kafkas Freund Max Brod 1931 den ersten Band von Kafkas Prosa aus dem Nachlass herausgegeben
