    Mystery in Western medicine.David Greaves - 1996 - Aldershot: Avebury.
    This study is based on a critique of Western medicine derived from the proposition that any system of medicine must necessarily embody a mysterious quality. What is meant by mystery is an all encompassing element of indeterminancy and so of uncertainty in both the theory and practice of medicine.

Martyn Evans, David Greaves, Jane Macnaughton, Deborah Kirklin & Sue Eckstein - 2013 - Journal of Medical Ethics 39 (11):667-668.
    Ted Shotter's founding of the London Medical Group 50 years ago in 1963 had several far reaching implications for medical ethics, as other papers in this issue indicate.

    What are heart attacks? Rethinking some aspects of medical knowledge.David Greaves - 1998 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 1 (2):133-141.
    There has been a modern epidemic of heart attacks in the western world, and this paper is concerned with this ‘new’ medical condition and how it arose. Two competing theories are commonly proposed, relating either to conventional accounts of medical science, or to social construction. Whilst recognising that aspects of both theories have some validity, it is claimed that neither is wholly adequate. This issue has particular relevance for heart attacks and is explored in some detail, but it also points (...)

    Sudden Infant Deaths: models of health and illness.David Greaves - 1988 - Journal of Applied Philosophy 5 (1):61-74.
    ABSTRACT The assumptions underlying the traditional biomedical model of health and illness and criticisms of it are described. An examination of the historical development of ideas concerning cot (crib) deaths shows how early explanations, which were congruent with this model, came to be discredited. Because subsequent explanations have also been considered unsatisfactory, cot deaths have come to be regarded as medically problematic. The relationship of models of health and illness to cot deaths has therefore been exposed to an unusual degree (...)
