Covering such basic yet controversial issues as death and dying, truth-telling, confidentiality, and physician-patient relationships, this book seeks to combine the theory with the practice of medical ethics.
Its virtue and originality lie in the case studies, which are woven into the text, as well as in the historical perspective provided by the use of classic texts by philosophers such as Plato Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, William James and John Dewey.
