Body Parts, Property Rights and the Ownership of Human Biological Materials

Creator: E. Richard Gold | Law - 1996

Given the international aspects of both intellectual property law and biotechnology, this book will be of interest throughout the world and especially valuable in common-law (most English-speaking) countries.

About this book
In Body Parts, E. Richard Gold examines whether the body and materials derived from it -- such as human organs and DNA -- should be thought of as market commodities and subject to property law. Analyzing a series of court decisions concerning property rights, Gold explores whether the language and assumptions of property law can help society determine who has rights to human biological materials. Gold observes that the commercial opportunities unleashed by advances in biotechnology present a challenge to the ways that society has traditionally valued the human body and human health. In a balanced discussion of both commercial and individual perspectives, Gold asserts the need to understand human biological materials within the context of human values, rather than economic interests. This perceptive book will be welcomed by scholars and other professionals engaged in questions regarding bioethics, applied ethics, the philosophy of value, and property and intellectual property rights. Given the international aspects of both intellectual property law and biotechnology, this book will be of interest throughout the world and especially valuable in common-law (most English-speaking) countries.

    Big hit for this homeschooling physician!

    This is a fantastic tool for a homeschool unit on the human body. I use it with my 6 and 4 year olds, but it is probably intended for 8-10 year olds. (I'm a physician trying to homeschool, and so my unit on the human body is probably far from typical!)If you don't homeschool, this is still worth having. Use it with your kids to review what they are covering in their lessons. (I believe that's technically called 'afterschooling'!) I don't think it would work well in a classroom, though. Way too small; it needs to be used with maybe 2-3 kids max at a time.I get it out for every lesson of our human body study. We look at the system we are studying, and it is a tremendous visual aid to understand the physiology.For example: Today we talked about respiration. The diaphragm can be tricky to explain, so I used this model. With the forceps I pushed the diaphragm piece up and down while making exaggerated sound effects.

    Great idea, poorly constructed

    I wanted to love this, but I just couldn't because of the poor construction. The book is a great tool for introducing kids to the human body and it does so in a fun and conversational tone. The diagram of the organs was a big hit with my kids and they spent quite a bit of time matching them up to the poster. The organs themselves fascinate the kids with the squishy, not quite slimy feel. My biggest complaint is with the skull and clear plastic exterior. The skull on our body never clicked when closed, so it would constantly fall off after we attached the exterior pieces. And don't even get me started on trying to close the case around the body. Ours just never seemed to line up right. All of the bones, muscles, and hard plastic pieces are attached with these little (very bendable and breakable) plastic knobs that fit into holes. The bones and muscles don't always fit right and we have a hard time manuvering them. If we move them around too much all of the other various pieces start... 3/5 RyemsonRox (Golden Isles) - See all my reviews This review is from: SmartLab Toys Squishy Human Body (Toy) I wanted to love this, but I just couldn't because of the poor construction.

    HUMAN BODY MODEL

    We bought this toy for our 4 1/2 year old grandson who is always asking questions about how his body works. The smile on his face when he opened this gift was priceless! There are many small parts included, but with adult assistance, he enjoyed taking the body parts out and examining them. The pieces are made of a very soft plastic that almost feels slimy, but isn't. The "touch" added to the mystery of the organs and generated many more questions...a very good learning toy! A chart is included, labeling the body parts for easy identification. The molded outer body is made of two pieces of see-through hard plastic that snaps together easily. (Lay the backside of the body on the table while you replace the body parts and then snap the frontside in place to hold everything together.) A fun, fact-filled book is also included - full of great pictures and facts that are fun to read. This toy was perfect for our inquisitive grandson who is able to safely play with small parts.

    THE BEST!!!

    0 5/5 FromTeacher2Nurse (Eastern North Carolina) - See all my reviews This review is from: Human Body: An Illustrated Guide to Every Part of the Human Body and How It Works (Paperback) I bought this book on vacation before I even began taking Anatomy and Phys (a prerequisite to the nursing program). I just wanted to know a little more about what I was going to be learning. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! The illustrations are really good, labeled well with simple and concise explanations. It's a little to big to fit "in your pocket" but easily fits in your purse or front pocket of your bookbag. I carried it around everywhere while I took A&P - much easier than lugging the big A&P textbook to the doctor's office, laundrymat, etc. I still keep it in my bookbag now and in class if the instructor says, "As you'll recall learning XYZ in anatomy..." I can whip it out and look it up quickly to refresh my memory. GREAT BOOK!!! My four-year-old likes to "study" this book while I'm studying - enjoyable even for preschoolers! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 3, 2005

    Not as good as the reviews said and less than I expected

    First of all, I already have Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy, 3rd Edition. I was looking for a more general, simpler atlas of anatomy with explantion of fundamental physiology without the complexities that Netter's incorporates into almost all cross-sections/plates.The positive things about this book is that it has good and easy to understand guides on physiology and common illnesses. Almost all major body parts are described with clear to-the-point short paragraphs.However, even though the book is full of color illustrations on every page, they are over-simplified to the extent that many are either out of proportion or poorly drawn. For example, on the page where it's describing how air and food pass through the laryx then food goes to esophagus and air goes into trachea, the three diagrams there show different sizes for epiglottis and pharynx, even though apparently it's explaining the same system!!! I would really have to say the diagrams/illustrations are... 3/5 Aramaki (Earth) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great puzzle for children wanting to learn about the human body

    0 5/5 discoverit777 (Fort Wayne, IN USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I Learn The Human Body (Toy) This is a really great puzzle for my 4 year old. She is very much 'into' the Disney Jr. show, "Doc McStuffins" and loves learning about the human body. We have fun learning about the body together. It is a very well thought out puzzle with different printed back sides so that the pieces can be easily sorted for the 3 different puzzles and the boy and girl. Well worth the price here on Amazon. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 27, 2014

    Helps give kids a first look into the working of a human body.

    0 5/5 jgv73r - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I Learn The Human Body (Toy) Over the summer we learned about the human body with our 5 year old. This was perfect for her to get just the right amount of information. As she did the puzzle I would point out and explain what each organ was why we needed it and what it does for in our bodies. The puzzle itself was a little hard for her at first and when frustration set in we just moved on. She's now able to do them all on her own and now tells me about different parts why its important to eat healthy food and exercise etc. This was only one of multiple learning formats we used and added to what we learned. I can also see this being pulled back out in 2nd or 3rd grade to give her a deeper understanding of any unit she has to work on. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 29, 2015

    Save your money

    0 2/5 Offbeatchic - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: I Learn The Human Body (Toy) I was really excited about this puzzle, but when I got it I found myself extremely disappointed. The boy and girl body pieces don't fit well into the cut out, and I thought the other puzzle layers would fit inside, or at least be the size of the board the thicker people pieces fit into, but they aren't. Even for me as an adult it was a pain because I kept trying to like up the pieces over the bottom layer and they just don't go. Some of the pieces were bent when we opened it, and some just don't fit together very well. I don't think it's worth the money for the flimsy pieces and poor fit. Good idea (why it got even 2 stars) but poor execution. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 29, 2015

The information is concise and up to date, and the pictures and illustrations are incredibly detailed. I've learned something new on every page. I've just undergone bypass surgery on my heart and afterwards a plural effusion on my lungs. This book helped me understand my problems better than my doctor had.

    Pretty good for the most part

    0 3/5 K. Brennan - See all my reviews This review is from: The Human Body Book (Book & DVD) (Hardcover) This book was pretty good for the most part; however, I did find some errors in the anatomy (at gross and cellular level) and labels (duplicates and otherwise). There is a vast amount of information contained in it, but the artwork is not very consistent and most of it appears to be renders straight from the 3d program that was used.There are many dynamic and interesting views of the material covered, but that is set back by some of the textures on the models. It seems like a few extra months were needed for the book so that some finishing touches could be applied.One thing that does irk me is that the nerves are green...As a collector of anatomy, medical, histology, and biology books, I can recommend this book; but will stipulate that there are others that I definitely prefer.KB 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 28, 2008

Because let's face it -- if one more pair of our used BVDs fails to hit the clothes hamper, the same thing might happen to US.I was in a bit of a rush this V-Day, so my make-up holiday gift giving didn't go quite as well as I'd hoped.What more can you give your beloved on Valentine's Day than your very heart?A necklace, I was told when I handed this one over. Or a tennis bracelet. She would have also accepted a spa coupon, Amazon gift certificate, Manicure of the Month club, an ice cream sundae, three sticks of Big Red chewing gum, or a homemade action figure of herself made from pipe cleaners and paper clips.Instead, she got a horrifying real-life blood-and-guts plastic heart.Say what you like about romance.
