“Is Medical Ethics a Branch of Philosophy?”
Doç. Dr. Rainer Brömer, İÜ Istanbul Medical Faculty, Dept. for History of Medicine and Ethics
While contemporary medical practice increasingly engages with ethical issues based on a limited range of philosophical principles (notably those developed by Beauchamp and Childress since 1979), little attention is generally paid to the underlying philosophical debates, to the extent that Beauchamp and Childress’ “Principles of Biomedical Ethics” have become known as the “Georgetown Mantra” (after Tom Beauchamp’s academic affiliation), leading an uneasy (often unreflected) coexistence with a case-based (casuistic) approach to ethical reasoning. This talk offers some reflections on the complex relationship between biomedical ethics and its philosophical foundations.
