Casuist or Cassandra? Two Conceptions of the Bioethicist's Role
Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. 1994 Summmer; 3(3): 451-466.
It is time to rejoin the study of global bioethics and the study of clinical bioethics; indeed, discussion of ecological issues and the relationship of humans to nature are beginning to appear in the bioethics literature. Coordinating the concerns and language of the two areas is a large project; in this paper, I will confine myself to reminding readers of current global concerns, outline some considerations of justice in healthcare suggested by these concerns, and make a plea for further application of global approaches to ethical problems arising in hospitals, academic health science centers, and clinics. This paper is not intended to complete an argument but to suggest that arguments and principles can connect global concerns reasonably and meaningfully to specific, daily clinical ethical concerns.
