Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 22 (4):381-403 (1997)
Abstract
There is great skepticism about the admittance of expert normative ethics testimony into evidence.

We argue for an alternative way to understand such expert testimony. This alternative understanding is based on the practice of clinical ethics
