About this book

A theory of Clinical Bioethics based on the integration of the moral logic of health care practice ("internal morality") and the larger social concerns and processes ("external morality")

Clinical Bioethics. A Search for the Foundations compares major theoretical models in the foundation of clinical bioethics and explains medicine as a normative practice. The goals of medicine are discussed with particular reference to the subjectivisation of health and the rationalisation of health care institutions. This volume provides a consistent reconstruction of  bioethical judgment both at the level of epistemological statute and institutional context, i.e. clinical ethics committees and clinical ethics consultation.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Corrado Viafora … has assembled essays from a clinical bioethics conference which reflect a large and enduring perspective on the origins of clinical ethics and its future. … I recommend this book to those who seek a deeper understanding of bioethics as it is rooted in both ancient and recent philosophy and in the practical search for consensus in modern clinical dilemmas. … this collection is helpful when considering the plurality of world views and value systems of both patients and physicians." (R. Henry Williams, Ethics and Medicine, Vol. 25 (1), 2009)
