Originally published in 1979, this classic in medical ethics circles has been updated in 1983 and again in 1989. A broad overview of moral, ethical, and philosophical theories is presented before a lengthy presentation on four ethical principles: autonomy, nonmalevolence, beneficence, and justice. In addition, chapters on professional-patient relationships, and ideals, virtues, and conscientiousness are provided. The last part of the book gives case studies.
