The case discussed in this Essay is presently making its way through the Pennsylvania courts. It involves Daniel Joseph Fiori, a man who has been unconscious since the mid-1970s. At stake are decisions concerning life-sustaining procedures. As the case has unfolded, Mr. Fiori's other, his caregivers, judges, and public officials have been struggling over the relative merits of different views, and over whose view shall finally prevail. Both the procedural and substantive aspects of this case offer a disturbing, personal, and very tangible illustration of several of the issues examined in this symposium.
