Overview

Using a philosophical viewpoint, this book will assist physicians in understanding three fundamental concerns of their profession--what is the purpose of medicine; what is the medical doctor's legitimate role in general and specific circumstances; and what are and what ought to be the limits on medical interventions.

The coherent strategy used will aid both practicing physicians and medical students in their day-to-day commitment to managing and maintaining excellence in the medical profession.
