Joseph Millum, The Moral Foundations of Parenthood

Joseph Millum, The Moral Foundations of Parenthood Asian Bioethics Review (2018) 10:333–335 https://doi.org/10.1007/s41649-018-0063-y BOOK REVIEW Oxford University Press, 2018, 168 pp., £41.99 (hardback), ISBN Harisan Unais Nasir Received: 19 June 2018 / Accepted: 3 October 2018 / Published online: 24 October 2018 National University of Singapore and Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2018 The Moral Foundations of Parenthood provides an insightful account of how parental rights are grounded and how these rights are constrained by the interests of the child as well as our duties toward justice and fairness. The book furthers the current debate on the origin of parental rights, most notably, it advances the unique view of parental rights that Millum calls the BInvestment Theory of Parental Rights^. On Millum’spicture, parental rights are constrained not only by the interests of the child, but also by our duties to bring about a more just society. The opening chapter of Millum’swork provides a succinct account of his methodology that importantly lays the procedural foundations on how we ought to think about parental rights. Furthermore, the proposed accounts in the book are also unified in a way that ensures the theories of moral parenthood are not merely ad-hoc to our current accounts of morality.
