Editor’s Pick, September 2016: Nie and Fitzgerald

Our Editor’s Pick for September 2016 is Jing-Bao Nie and Ruth Fitzgerald’s article, “Connecting the East and the West, the Local and the Universal: The Methodological Elements of a Transcultural Approach to Bioethics.” Nie and Fitzgerald argue that scholars working in transcultural bioethics have “seriously problematic methodological habits in approaching cultural differences,” such as “radically dichotomizing the East and the West, the local and the universal.” In light of this, Nie and Fitzgerald’s paper seeks to develop new methodologies for transcultural bioethics.
