Bioethics as Individual and Social: The Scope of a Consulting Profession and Academic Discipline

Journal of Religious Ethics 3 (1):111 - 139 (1975)
Abstract
The author argues that bioethics ought properly to be regarded "both" as a consulting profession that counsels health practitioners in dealing with the individual problems they face "and" as an academic discipline that defines problem areas on its own and includes attention to the institutional and social aspects of health care. The argument is conducted by means of a brief history of bioethics and comparison of its development with that of history of medicine and sociology of medicine. Several examples of the social issues in bioethics are examined.
