The Role of Suffering and Community in Clinical Ethics
Loewy, Erich H.
Journal of Clinical Ethics. 1991 Summer; 2(2): 83-89.
I have briefly sketched an ethics based on the capacity to suffer and have connected it with a view of social contract and community that is mindful of its beneficent obligations as well as its obligations to respect autonomy. The use of such a concept may help in clarifying some of the vexing clinical problems as well as in dealing with issues of communal policy.
