Description

Auteur

D. Micah Hester is assistant professor of biomedical ethics at Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon, Georgia.



Texte du rabat

Starting from the insights of classical American pragmatism, this book argues for a higher notion of the relationship between individuals and their communities. This newly enriched notion supports a more participatory engagement between physicians and patients which takes ethical medicine to be a community of healing enjoyed by health care professionals and those they care for.



Résumé
This study discusses human relationships that accentuate the situatedness of problems and solutions. The author also stresses the need for shared experience in order to develop the concept of "self" and to intergrate that self into the community, aiding individuals involved in medical encounters.
