"Love's Casuistry": Paul Ramsey on Caring for the Terminally Ill

Journal of Religious Ethics 19 (2):133 - 156 (1991)
This paper explores Paul Ramsey's thought on the question of how properly to care for the sick and dying. Ramsey's views were carefully articulated in "The Patient as Person" and, eight years later, "Ethics at the Edges of Life". Those two treatments are the centerpiece of analysis here, an analysis that argues for essential continuity in Ramsey's view, even though issues are sharpened and explored in new ways in the later work. The theological vision underlying Ramsey's thought on this topic is also examined and explored.
