This article is the last in a series of articles describing the field of clinical ethics. In this essay we anticipate some likely directions for clinical ethics. We have chosen to make projections for the next two decades -- a period roughly equal to the entire history of the modern biomedical ethics movement in America. Over the last two decades, biomedical ethics has kept pace with revolutionary developments in biology and medicine. As a result, biomedical ethics has changed more profoundly in this period than in the whole of its previous history. Today it is of the utmost interest not just to ethicists, but to the whole of our society, including the health professions, the general public, the courts, the media, and policy makers.
