ABC of Brain Stem Death: The Arguments About the EEG
BMJ (British Medical Journal). 1983 Jan 22; 286(6361): 284-287.

He analyzes the arguments of advocates and detractors of the EEG as being grounded in different conceptions of the meaning of brain death and cautions physicians that reliance on instrumental diagnosis may lead to wrong decisions in practice.
