Philosophical Integrity and Policy Development in Bioethics
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1990 Aug; 15(4): 375-389.
Critically examining what most people take for granted is central to philosophical inquiry. Philosophers who accept positions on policy making commissions, tasks forces, or committees cannot, however, play the same uncompromisingly critical role in this capacity as they do in the classroom or in their personal research or writing. Still, philosophers have much to contribute to such bodies, and they can do so without compromising their integrity or betraying themselves as philosophers.
