Critiquing many areas of medical practice and research whilst making constructive suggestions about medical education, this book extends the scope of medical ethics beyond sole concern with regulation.
Illustrating some humanistic ways of understanding patients, this volume explores the connections between medical ethics, healthcare and subjects, such as philosophy, literature, creative writing and medical history and how they can affect the attitudes of doctors towards patients and the perceptions of medicine, health and disease which have become part of contemporary culture.
The authors examine a range of ideas in medical practice and research, including:
An excellent text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of law, medical ethics and medical healthcare law, Bioethics and the Humanities shows the real ethical achievements, problems and half-truths of contemporary medicine.

"This book has many strengths. It is iconoclastic, critical, clear and well written throughout...
A valuable signpost on a journey that effectively has only just begun... graduate students and experienced healthcare workers in many disciplines and practices will find in it a valuable articulation of some of the main issues and challenges that present themselves... for some, it may be life- and practice-transforming. [Downie and Macnaughton] show themselves to be congenial, fascinating and demanding exemplars and guides for those who chose to put their feet on the medical humanities path." - Medical Humanities, vol. 33 no.2 (December 2007)
"The book is well written, lively, and readable and serves to stimulate a desire in the reader to discuss, debate and further explore the issues raised. I would recommend it to anyone involved in the fields of bioethics and medical education, but most especially to doctors themselves (and aspiring ones) who will find much food for thought here no matter what stage in their career." - Joe Bouch, Association for Medical Humanities Newsletter, Spring 2008
