"A definitive and authoritative guide to a vibrant and growing discipline in current philosophy, The Bloomsbury companion to Contemporary Philosophy of Medicine presents an overview of the issues facing contemporary philosophy of medicine, the research methods required to understand them and a trajectory for the discipline's future. Written by world leaders in the discipline, this companion addresses the ontological, epistemic, and methodological challenges facing philosophers of medicine today, from the debate between evidence-based and person-centered medicine, medical humanism, and gender medicine, to traditional issues such as disease, health, and clinical reasoning and decision-making. Practical and forward-looking, it also includes a detailed guide to research sources, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated bibliography, as well as an introductory survey of research methods and discussion of new research directions emerging in response to the rapid changes in modern medicine. "'Philosophy needs medicine', Hillel Braude argues, 'to become more relevant'". By showing how modern medicine provides philosophers with a rich source of material for investigating issues facing contemporary society, The Bloomsbury Companion to Contemporary Philosophy of Medicine introduces the opportunities medicine offers philosophers together with the resources and skills required to contribute to contemporary debates and discussions"-- Provided by publisher.
"A state-of-the-art guide to the theoretical and practical issues in contemporary philosophy of medicine, with topics ranging from evidence-based medicine and epidemiology to person-centered and gender medicine"-- Provided by publisher.
