Ethics Expert Testimony: Against the Skeptics
Agich, George J.
Journal of Medicine and Philosophy. 1997 Aug; 22(4): 381-403.
There is great skepticism about the admittance of expert normative ethics testimony into evidence. However, a practical analysis of the way ethics testimony has been used in courts of law reveals that the skeptical position is itself based on assumptions that are controversial. We argue for an alternative way to understand such expert testimony. This alternative understanding is based on the practice of clinical ethics.
