Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 3 (1):3-34 (1982)
This report explores the relationship between philosophy and medicine in the U.K. We note that medical training involves very little formal instruction in philosophy and ethics, and that, with few exceptions, philosophers in the U.K. do not contribute to the instruction of physicians or the philosophy of medicine. However, reviewing the problems arising out of recent developments within scientific medicine we find a pressing need for future philosophical analysis in the following areas: psychiatry, organ transplantation, abortion, euthanasia, experiments on living subjects, consent, confidentiality, the relationship between medicine and political authority, and the provisions for social justice in medicine.
