Title:
Gift exchange theory, organ donation and religion: what is the connection?
Authors:
Wilkins, C.; Randhawa, Gurch ( 0000-0002-2289-5859 ) ; Kaur-Bola, K.
Abstract:
An organ may be referred to as a 'gift of life' however, this chapter examines the connection between the notion of the gift through Mauss's gift exchange theory and deceased organ donation. Religion may be viewed to encourage donation as teachings of helping others and giving to those who are in need could extrapolate into organ donation. However, this view may be simplistic as is further discovered when examining the connection between religion, helping others, gift exchange and deceased organ donation.
