    A Comprehensive Theory of the Human Person From Philosophy and Nursing.Catherine Green - 2009 - Nursing Philosophy 10 (4):263-274.
    This article explores a problem of the articulation of an adequate account of the human person in both philosophical and nursing theory. It follows the lead of philosopher Norris Clarke in suggesting that there has been a significant division in the way philosophers have looked at the human person and goes on to suggest that this division is paralleled in prominent nursing theories. The paper reviews and argues for the synthesis of two contemporary philosophic theories of the person that arise (...)

    Nursing Intuition: A Valid Form of Knowledge.Catherine Green - 2012 - Nursing Philosophy 13 (2):98-111.
    An understanding of the nature and development of nursing intuition can help nurse educators foster it in young nurses and give clinicians more confidence in this aspect of their knowledge, allowing them to respond with greater assurance to their intuitions. In this paper, accounts from philosophy and neurophysiology are used to argue that intuition, specifically nursing intuition, is a valid form of knowledge. The paper argues that nursing intuition, a kind of practical intuition, is composed of four distinct aspects that (...)

    Philosophic Reflections on the Meaning of Touch in Nurse–Patient Interactions.Catherine Green - 2013 - Nursing Philosophy 14 (4):242-253.

The first is the clinical intimacy of the nurse–patient relationship where nurses touch, rub, smooth, clean, dress and otherwise physically interact with patients. The other is the existential crisis, the possibility of loss, suffering and (...)

    The Definition of Moral Virtue. [REVIEW]Catherine Green - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 41 (3):634-635.
    This book exemplifies the clarity and precision which Simon brought to the various subjects he addressed. Why though, would one be interested in virtue? Do not such theories as the natural goodness of man, social engineering, or perhaps psycho-technology provide us with more fruitful and less difficult means of finding the end of good human action? In a particularly enlightening discussion of the problem of nature and use, Simon shows that theories of the natural goodness of man and psycho-technology are (...)
