    Yearning for Certainty and the Critique of Medicine as “Science”.Mark H. Waymack - 2009 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 30 (3):215-229.
    A debate has simmered concerning the nature of clinical reasoning, especially diagnostic reasoning: Is it a “science” or an “art”? The trend since the seventeenth century has been to regard medical reasoning as scientific reasoning, and the most advanced clinical reasoning is the most scientific. However, in recent years, several scholars have argued that clinical reasoning is clearly not “science” reasoning, but is in fact a species of narratival or hermeneutical reasoning. The study reviews this dispute, and argues that in (...)

    An Essay on the Nature and Conduct of the Passions and Affections, with Illustrations on the Moral Sense.Mark H. Waymack - 2004 - Hume Studies 30 (1):208-209.
    With the reintroduction of Hume’s philosophical works in the form of the Green and Gross editions, and the concomitant decline of the British Hegelians about a century ago, respect for Hume’s philosophical talent rose enormously. Our respect and admiration for Hume’s genius, whether we entirely agree with his work or not, has been a sustained, perhaps ever growing, philosophical attitude throughout the time since. However, we have been much slower to recapture and appreciate the philosophical discourse that helped to shape (...)

  6. Moral Philosophy and Newtonianism in the Scottish Enlightenment: A Study of the Moral Philosophies of Gershom Carmichael, Francis Hutcheson, David Hume and Adam Smith.Mark H. Waymack - 1986 - Dissertation, The Johns Hopkins University
    This thesis studies the development of empiricist Scottish moral philosophy from its origins in the work of Gershom Carmichael through the works of Francis Hutcheson, David Hume, and Adam Smith. Impressed by the successes of the new sciences, particularly Newtonian science, these philosophers each sought to bring this modern scientific method to bear upon the pursuit of moral theory. By tracing the development of moral philosophy through these four authors, we find important changes in how they understand the questions, methodology, (...)

  16. The Ethics of Selectively Marketing the Health Maintenance Organization.Mark H. Waymack - 1990 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 11 (4).
    Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) administrators have been accused of engaging in selective marketing. That is, through such strategies as tailoring the benefits package of the program or advertising in styles or in media that do not appeal to certain undesirable audiences, the administrator can minimize the percentage of persons in the HMO who are heavy users of health care services.By means of analyzing what insurance is (philosophically) and what it means for something to be a free market commodity, the author (...)
