Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the reviewed volume, the author confronts one of the most problematic issues of our time; indeed, of every time, since the questions about the end of life and the passing of death have been tormenting man (doctor, jurist, citizen) since ancient times. The debate on the existence of a right to the so-called sweet death (its limits and methods of exercise) has always proved to be quite slippery for doctors and jurists; but not only. The religious, ethical and moral implications of euthanasia touch the sensitivity of anyone who has come into contact with the experience of the painful death of a neighbor. For this reason, the problem of the failure to regulate euthanasia practices bursts cyclically in the political debate, with the occurrence of tragic events that shake public opinion and (or at least should) legislative inertia. In this context, the volume by Marco Cavina, which also deals with an "ethically sensitive" subject (perhaps the most discussed of the current era), manages to shed light on the many prejudices that surround euthanasia.
