Philosphical medical ethics forms the basis of the codes of conduct and legal constraints involved in doctors' professional lives.

The book serves as an introduction whose aim is to encourage more rigorous analysis of the moral dilemmas confronting all physicians and to contribute to a comprehensive and coherent moral theory for medical practice.
