Focuses on Zaner’s work in the clinical setting, especially the use of narrative in understanding what is going on in this setting Presents Zaner's methodology and phenomenological approach to the more standard bioethical problems and approaches Includes Zanerian articles that articulate and explicate the use of stories and narratives Examines the relation between theory and clinical practice
This collection of articles honors the work of Richard Zaner, a
distinguished philosopher who has worked for over twenty years as an
ethics consultant at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
His work in the clinical setting, especially the use of narrative in
understanding what is going on in this setting, is the focus of some of
the papers. Others relate his methodology and phenomenological approach
to the more standard bioethical problems and approaches.
The essential questions: What is the role of the phenomenological philosopher turned
medical ethicist? Is medical ethics a form of applied philosophy, or is
it also a form of therapy? What kind of “ethics” emerges from a careful narrative rendering of clinical situations?
