520    East Asian medicine, biomedical research, and health care 
       policy are framed by their own set of moral and cultural 
       commitments. Chief among these is the influence of 
       Confucian ideas. A rich portrayal is offered of the 
       implications of Confucian moral and ontological 
       understandings for medical decision-making, human 
       embryonic stem cell research, and health care financing. 
       What is offered is a multifaceted insight into what 
       distinguishes East Asian bioethical reflections. This 
       volume opens with an exploration of the Confucian 
       recognition of the family as an entity existing in its own
       right and which is not reducible to its members or their 
       interests. As the essays in this volume show, this 
       recognition of the family supports a notion of family 
       autonomy that contrasts with Western individualistic 
       accounts of proper medical decision-making. There are 
       analyses of basic concepts as well as explorations of 
       their implications for actual medical practice. The 
       conflicts in East Asian countries between traditional 
       Confucian and Western bioethics are explored as well as 
       the tension between the new reproductive technologies and 
       traditional understandings of the family. The studies of 
       East Asian reflections concerning the moral status of 
       human embryos and the morality of human embryo stem cell 
       research disclose a set of concerns quite different from 
       those anchored in Christian and Muslim cultural 
       perspectives. The volume closes with an exploration of how
       Confucian cultural resources can be drawn upon to meet the
       contemporary challenges of health care financing.
