Understanding Jewish Biomedical Ethics: Reflections on the Papers
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1983 Aug; 8(3): 207-215.
Franck, editor of a journal issue containing seven articles on Jewish biomedical ethics, categorizes the articles as illustrating different modes of explication of the encounter between Jewish and general biomedical ethics. He describes Immanuel Jakobovits' responses to letters as representing the "expository" mode; Fred Rosner's discussion of issues confronting the traditionalist Jewish physician--the "inquiring" mode; Harry H. Gordon's article on the doctor-patient relationship--the "phenomenological" mode; Sid Z. Leiman's article on 'therapeutic homicide'--the "comparative" mode; Martin P. Golding's article on preventive versus curative medicine--the "exploratory" mode; Moshe Halevi Spero's article on psychotherapy--the "consensual-analytic" mode; and Baruch A. Brody's article on the application of Halakhic materials to biomedical ethics--the "challenge" mode. (KIE abstract)
