Centering bioethics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

12 Scopus citations


Bioethicists mark their place in the moral world of medicine by telling tales of how they moved from academia to the bedside, from the periphery to the center. And they mark their place in bioethics through competing visions of the discipline and its methods set out in rhetorical strategies that "center" different approaches, such as principilist, casuist, or narrative. In the process, they reveal the poetics of moral argument.
