    Dementia, Beauty, and Play: A Way of Seeing and Being with the Wearisome Patient.Abram Brummett & Michelle Bach - 2022 - Clinical Ethics 17 (1):87-89.
    We describe a case of an elderly patient suffering from advanced dementia whose chronic confusion has become a source of frustration for her caregivers. Mrs. M experiences a touching interaction with a new nurse who takes a different approach with her. We describe this interaction and elaborate upon it by drawing from Catholic social teaching and the philosophy of play. Cases like these do not involve dramatic or esoteric ethical problematics, but rather the sort of dilemma born of the everyday (...)

    Violence, Research, and Non-Identity in the Psychiatric Clinic.Michelle Bach - 2018 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 39 (4):283-299.
    Violence in psychiatric clinics has been a consistent problem since the birth of modern psychiatry. In this paper, I examine current efforts to understand and reduce both violence and coercive responses to violence in psychiatry, arguing that these efforts are destined to fall short. By and large, scholarship on psychiatric violence reduction has focused on identifying discrete factors that are statistically associated with violence, such as patient demographics and clinical qualities, in an effort to quantify risk and predict violent acts (...)

    Still Human: A Call for Increased Focus on Ethical Standards in Cadaver Research.Michelle Bach - 2016 - HEC Forum 28 (4):355-367.
    Research on human cadavers is an important mechanism of scientific progress and comprises a large industry in the United States. However, despite its importance and influence, there is little ethical or regulatory oversight of cadaver-based research. This lack of transparency raises important ethical questions. Thus, this paper serves as a call for ethicists and regulators to pay increased attention to cadaver research. I argue that cadaver research ought to be considered a subset of human subjects research and held accountable to (...)

    When the Universal is Particular: A Re-Examination of the Common Morality Using the Work of Charles Taylor.Michelle C. Bach - 2022 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 25 (1):141-151.
    Beauchamp and Childress’ biomedical principlism is nearly synonymous with medical ethics for most clinicians. Their four principles are theoretically derived from the “common morality”, a universal cache of moral beliefs and claims shared by all morally serious humans. Others have challenged the viability of the common morality, but none have attempted to explain why the common morality makes intuitive sense to Western ethicists. Here I use the work of Charles Taylor to trace how events in the Western history of ideas (...)
