Brody, Baruch A.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1990 Apr; 15(2): 161-178.
This paper identifies four major forms of scholarship in bioethics: empirical research, the articulation of mid-level principles of bioethics, the relating of these principles to fundamental moral theories, and discussions of the bioethical implications of legal principles and health delivery policies.
