    Moral Problems in Medicine.Samuel Gorovitz - 1976 - Prentice-Hall.
    This book is designed primarily to provide readings for a consideration of the moral issues in medicine from a philosophical point of view. There are two basic alternatives in structuring a philosophical course in medical ethics. One is to divide the course according to medically conceived topics such as organ transplantation, genetic engineering, euthanasie, etc. Such an approach is wholly viable, but we have preferred no to adopt it here. Rather, we have organized the book primarily on the basis of (...)

    Doctors' dilemmas: moral conflict and medical care.Samuel Gorovitz - 1982 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    Doctor's Dilemmas, a fascinating study of the moral dilemmas confronting health professionals and patients alike, examines areas of health care where ethical conflicts often arise. Gorovitz illuminates these conflicts by clearly explaining and applying a broad range of philosophical concepts. He lays the groundwork for informed ethical decision-making and provides the general reader with a lucid overview of the complexities of medical practice. Written in accessible, conversational style and making extensive use of anecdotes, examples, and references to literature, Doctor's Dilemmas (...)

    Ventilators, Guidelines, Judgment, and Trust.Samuel Gorovitz - 2020 - Hastings Center Report 50 (3):5-6.
    Covid‐19 confronts us with tragic choices, in which every option is unacceptable. On the New York State Task Force on Life and the Law, I worked on guidelines for such situations. We did not envision the scale or character of Covid‐19. To minimize fear that the decisions made in these situations might be unfair, we all must know what guidelines or mandates inform them. Only with transparency about how decisions will be made, by whom, and according to what requirements can (...)

    Ethical issues in graduate education.Samuel Gorovitz - 1998 - Science and Engineering Ethics 4 (2):235-250.
    Concern about the employment prospects of Ph.D.’s in the sciences and engineering has prompted overdue interest in the ethical aspects of graduate education. It is not possible to isolate an ethical inquiry that focuses solely on job-related issues. The ethical problems in graduate education are each related to employment, but none is related to employment only. We can illuminate potential ethical problems by considering conflicts of interest at each point from the decision to offer a graduate program through the treatment (...)

  12. Improving Academic Writing.Jonathan Bennett & Samuel Gorovitz - 1997 - Teaching Philosophy 20 (2):105-120.
    Academic writing, even in prestigious journals, is frequently ugly and arduous. The writing in academic philosophy is no exception, especially given philosophers’ tendency to overlook prose and to focus exclusively on philosophical content. This paper argues that good prose matters for moral, prudential, and philosophical reasons. After glossing these reasons, the authors offer advice, born of experience, to academic writers who want to achieve clear, effective prose. Their advice includes how to improve sentence structure (e.g. eliminate undue repetition and forms (...)

    Is caring a viable component of health care?Samuel Gorovitz - 1994 - Health Care Analysis 2 (2):129-133.
    The attitudes and behaviours that constitute caring affect both the quality of the patient's experience and the outcomes of medical care. They can be identified and can be nurtured or discouraged by the structures of organisation and financing within which health care is provided. They have costs, so their viability is threatened as pressures increase to make health care more economically efficient. Yet the value of caring behaviour may justify what is necessary to sustain it. This issue deserves prompt and (...)

    Engineering human reproduction: A challenge to public policy.Samuel Gorovitz - 1985 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 10 (3):267-274.
    New prospects for technologically aided human reproduction require the development of a public policy concerning the setting of limits to reproductive autonomy and to research on human embryos. Previous American efforts to clarify policy on such matters have been ignored by the executive branch; there is a need for Congressional action to initiate the requisite processes of debate and policy formation.
