    Pragmatic Principles - Methodological Pragmatism in the Principle-Based Approach to Bioethics.Heike Schmidt-Felzmann - 2003 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 28 (5 & 6):581 – 596.
    In this paper it will be argued that Beauchamp and Childress' principle-based approach to bioethics has strongly pragmatic features. Drawing on the writings of William James, I first develop an understanding of methodological pragmatism as a method of justification. On the basis of Beauchamp's and Childress' most recent proposals concerning moral justification in the fifth edition of their Principles of Biomedical Ethics (2001), I then discuss different aspects that the principle-based approach and methodological pragmatism have in common.
