Thieves Of Virtue



In Thieves Of Virtue: When Bioethics Stole Medicine (MIT Press 2012), Tom Koch questions the "founding myths" of bio-ethics by which moral philosophers became practical ethicists serving as adjudicators of medical practice and planning. High philosophy, he argues, does not provide a guide to the practical dilemmas that arise at the bedside of sick patients. Nobody, he writes, carries Kant to a clinical consult.
