    Pragmatism, Metaphysics, and Bioethics: Beyond a Theory of Moral Deliberation.Matthew Pamental - 2013 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 38 (6):jht030.
    Pragmatism has been understood by bioethicists as yet another rival in the “methods wars,” as yet another theory of moral deliberation. This has led to criticism of pragmatic bioethics as both theoretically and practically inadequate.
