  1. Joseph J. Fins, Franklin G. Miller & Matthew D. Bacchetta (1998). Clinical Pragmatism: Bridging Theory and Practice. Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal 8 (1):37-42.

    In the debate regarding the different possibilities for gene therapy, it is presupposed that the manipulations are limited to the nuclear genome (nDNA). Given recent advances in genetics, mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) and diseases must be considered as well.

    : This paper presents a method of moral problem solving in clinical practice that is inspired by the philosophy of John Dewey. This method, called "clinical pragmatism," integrates clinical and ethical decision making.
