Philosophy of medicine in scandinavia

Theoretical Medicine 6 (1) (1985)
Abstract
This article presents a brief general view of the recent literature and the scholarly activity in the field of philosophy of medicine in Scandinavia. The focus of attention is not on medical ethics, but on studies on topics like decision theory, medical classification, causality, causal explanations, concept formation, and on analyses of different ideals of medical science and clinical practice. A few principal works on medical ethics are mentioned by way of introduction and a brief account of a highly topical debate on the legislation on artificial insemination in Sweden is given at the end.
