The Authority of a Moral Claim: Ian Ramsey and the Practice of Medicine
Journal of Medical Ethics. 1987 Dec; 13(4): 189-194.
This essay is the text of the first Ian Ramsey Memorial Lecture delivered by the author at Oxford University in December 1986. Ramsey, Bishop of Durham from 1966 until his death in 1972, was a philosopher whose interests were contemporary ethical issues created by the interaction of law, medicine, and religion. Dunstan describes Ramsey's contributions to moral discourse made through his participation in groups which, on behalf of the Church of England's Board of Social Responsibility, studied problems such as contraception, suicide, intensive care, and abortion.
