Understanding the Physician Power: A Review of "The Social Transformation of American Medicine"
Philosophy and Public Affairs. 1984 Fall; 13(4): 347-357.
Paul Starr's 1983 book on how physicians emerged with the power and authority to shape American health care institutions is reviewed. Daniels contends that Starr's analysis has important philosophical implications because it demonstrates that the medical profession, perhaps blinded by its own ethic, egregiously violated the common obligation of all citizens to promote justice in the design of institutions.
