Developing Sanity in Human Affairs

By Susan Presby Kodish; Robert P. Holston | Go to book overview

patients' rights to choose the circumstances of their own deaths are predicated on extensional cognitive processing. It would seem that if the new constructs are as intensional in orientation as the old, new taboos could arise, creating a society that views it as an obligation for the terminally ill to choose physician- assisted death. Such a new taboo would be as disastrous as the old.
