Details This volume contains a collection of papers on the practice of bioethics. Most of the papers were presented in person at the Eleventh Kumamoto University Bioethics Roundtable: Philosophy and Practice of Bioethics Across and Between Cultures, held from 18-19 November 2017 in Kusunoki Kaikan, Kumamoto University, Japan. All the authors appreciate the thoughtful comments made by other participants at the Roundtable which helped improve their papers.This collection of papers is less than 10% of the precious work that has been stimulated by holding annual Bioethics Roundtables in Kumamoto over twelve years. Among the features of the roundtables has been diversity of the participants and the wide range of presentations made during each year. Over one hundred different presenters from over thirty countries have joined together in the formal sessions in Kusunoki Kaikan (Hall), as well as on Mount Aso, in Kumamoto castle, and around the city, to share something of their spirit and ideas. The roundtables varied from two to five working days in length, and were always held in plenary session.
