Using Medical Technology to “Treat” the Dead

In 2016, we will continue to debate at least three big questions relating to death:

  1. Is the way in which we now measure brain death consistent with controlling legal standards?
  2. Is the way in which we now measure brain death ethically defensible?
  3. To what extent should we accommodate objections to brain death?
