Commentary: In Search of Medical Ethics and Its Foundation with Rosamond Rhodes

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debateScientific

Abstract

In her thorough and thoughtful contribution to the Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics titled "Medical Ethics: Common or Uncommon Morality" Rosamond Rhodes argues that contrary to American mainstream bioethics, medical ethics is not, and should not be, based on common morality, but rather, that the medical profession requires its own distinctive morality.1 She goes on to list sixteen duties that, according to her, form the core of medical ethics proper.
