Description

This survey of the origins and development of the ethics pertaining to the work of doctors, ranges from the Hippocratic medicine of ancient Greece through the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Enlightenment in Europe to the long history of medicine in India and China. Within this long, complex history, certain common themes about the duty of doctors appear. These themes are challenged by many of the current problems raised by modern science and practice.show more
