Originally published in 1985, this book examines the concept of death against the background of dramatic changes in medical technology. The book argues that ‘brain death’ can be precisely defined and that a biological concept of death such as ‘brain death’ can be philosophically well-grounded. It examines traditional criteria for death and various formulations of the concept of death in both medical literature and philosophical texts. Definitions of ‘brain death’ – some of which have become statute law – are critically examined. The

The story has been sculptured at the backdrop of scenic beauty in a typical Indian village with overwhelming farming community. It develops current reluctance of people to transform into the nuances of the modern world naturally embedded in the story. A twist to highlight the impoverished views of the society on casteism and agony faced by a girl and her parents during the marriage had been picturized. This then graduates to the evils of female feticide and unethical medical practices.

Beyond Brain Death offers a provocative challenge to one of the most widely accepted conclusions of contemporary bioethics: the position that brain death marks the death of the human person. Eleven chapters by physicians, philosophers, and theologians present the case against brain-based criteria for human death. Each author believes that this position calls into question the moral acceptability of the transplantation of unpaired vital organs from brain-dead patients who have continuing function of the circulatory system. One strength of the
