The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Medicine (PDF) is a total guide to subjects in the fields of epistemology and metaphysics of medicine. It checks out conventional subjects such as the principle of illness, causality in medicine, the epistemology of the randomized regulated trial, description, the biopsychosocial design, scientific judgment and phenomenology of medicine, and emerging subjects, such as the philosophy of public health, the principle of impairment, determining damages, nursing viewpoints, gender and race, the metaphysics of Chinese medicine, and narrative medicine. Each of the 48 chapters is composed especially for this volume and with a trainee audience in mind. For clearness and pedagogy, every chapter consists of a prolonged example highlighting the concepts gone over. This textbook is gone for usage as a referral for all trainees in courses in philosophy of philosophy and medicine of science and sets well with The Routledge Companion to Bioethics for usage in medical liberal arts and social science courses.


Unlike its sibling discipline, medical ethics, the viewpoint of medicine has long needed an anthology that surveys the field and the Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Medicine fills that gap. This collection offers a comprehensive overview of the methods and subjects of this emerging and exciting academic field. I am sure that this will become the standard introduction to the philosophy of medicine.” — Tod Chambers, Northwestern University, USA

Medicine’s challenges often appear to be purely technical and scientific—but those who work in clinical practice or health policy know all too well that technology and science generate as many intellectual challenges as they solve. This ebook, whose diverse contributors include many at the cutting edge of philosophical inquiry, illuminates and probes these complex challenges. Reassuringly, few chapters provide easy answers or quick fixes.” — Trisha Greenhalgh, University of Oxford, UK
