Product Description

May conciders the overarching images that shape the convictions and daily practice of the physician. Taking a step back from the procedures and quandaries that are the focal points of many books on ethics, he explores the moral power of images in understanding the healer and defining his or her tasks. In this second edition, May updates his reflections on five images of the healer: parent, fighter, technician, teacher, and covenanter.

Publisher's Description

In this book, William May considers the images that shape the convictions and daily practice of the physician--images that can order experience and present the practitioner with imperatives by which to live. This updated edition will once again challenge physicians, students, and teachers of medical ethics to reach a deeper understanding of the physician's place in society.
