Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 8 (3):217-224 (1983)
|Abstract||Specialising in Jewish Medical Ethics – a term, I believe, first used as the title of my doctor's thesis (1955) subsequently condensed and revised in book form (1959) – I frequently receive inquiries from individuals and organisations seeking guidance on the Jewish attitude to moral issues in medicine. After a review of my voluminous correspondence on many phases of this subject, I have made a small selection on a variety of topics. The correspondence on the last of the four topics, ‘medical experimentation on Animals’, is the longest, because it contains an element of polemics. Since this might make it of special interest to the Journal's readers, and since the subject is infrequently discussed in the literature of Medical Ethics, I decided to include it in this brief selection.
