The Value of Life According to "Law as a Way to Survive"
Medicine and Law: World Association for Medical Law 2003; 22(4): 579-588
Law as a Way to Survive is a comprehensive evolution-theory orientated philosophy of law and state that is tested in this article on its pertinence and explanatory power for the following issues: animal rights, abortion, euthanasia and assisted suicide. These subjects are suitable as tests precisely because they are not those for which LWS or rival theories, with which it will be compared, and for which it was primarily developed for. It will be concluded that LWS is very superior in pertinence and explanatory power both because it is much less metaphysical and much more complex than its rivals.
