Quality of scholarship in bioethics

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 15 (2):161-178 (1990)
This paper identifies four major forms of scholarship in bioethics: empirical research, the articulation of mid-level principles of bioethics, the relating of these principles to fundamental moral theories, and discussions of the bioethical implications of legal principles and health delivery policies. It develops a reflective equilibrium approach to the relation between these four forms of scholarship. It then presents, in light of this approach, criteria for quality research in each of these forms of scholarship in bioethics. Keywords: quality of scholarship, reflective equilibria in bioethics, research in bioethics CiteULike Connotea Del.icio.us What's this?
