In the Face of Suffering. The Philosophical-Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics.

Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


This book is for those searching for an ethics engine with enough philosophical power to drive healthcare reform toward a balance between medical technology and human compassion. Jos Welie's project is to “develop a foundation for a patient-centered, non-procedural, clinically grounded but methodologically sound ethics.” This is an important goal that has eluded others. Jos Welie has more nearly succeeded in this book than any other author who has come to my attention.
