about

Dr. Jos V. M. Welie challenges this moral stranger metaphor and attempts to restore the phenomenon of intersubjective, benevolent care. He presents a philosophical-anthropological foundation for clinical ethics in which such notions as suffering, sympathy, and solidarity are central.
Dr. Jos V. M. Wellie's multidisciplinary background in medicine, philosophy and law, and his experience as a clinical ethicist, merge in this powerful argument for a personalist ethics in health care.

From Our Editors

The prevailing attitude in Western medicine is that the patient has the final say about his or her state of health. While most healthcare professionals and ethicists presume this accepted practice represents what is in ‘the best interest of the patient,` other practitioners are beginning to question whether it really is. Dr. Jos V.M. Welie examines the ‘moral stranger metaphor` in light of this potentially ‘hot-button` issue in In the Face of Suffering: The Philosophical and Anthropological Foundations of Clinical Ethics.
