  • Creative Adequation: Merleau-Ponty's Philosophy of Philosophy
    Dissertation, Mcmaster University (Canada). 1988.
    Phenomenology is associated with the motto 'to the things themselves', or even more tellingly, 'back to the things themselves'. This injunction makes sense only against the background belief that somehow we are at some remove from 'the things themselves' to which we are invited to return. In phenomenology, this 'origin' is variously determined as 'experience', 'existence', 'the life-world', and so on. ;Much depends upon how we understand this return that phenomenology advocates and practises. On…Read more

    The organizing theme for this special volume raises a momentous question: What are the implications of 21st century science for nursing care? The two terms the question relates – 21st century science and nursing care – are each of central importance for nursing and in philosophical enquiry about nursing as a practice, profession, or institution. These key terms are also highly charged and open to interpretation, as is the relationship of implication between them. Different interpretations or ass…Read more

    Marketing Ethics: The Bottom Line?
    Journal of Business Ethics 7 (12). 1988.
    In this paper, I consider the tremendous growth in the field of business ethics with reference to the way it is being "marketed". One hears the sales pitch that businesses ought to pay more attention to business ethics because doing so will in fact bring significant rewards. The bottom line here is self-interest. Given that the relationship between self-interest and morality has always been problematic in our tradition, I argue that we have some hard thinking to do about what the bottom line in …Read more

    Prolegomena to Any Future Code of Ethics for Bioethicists
    Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 2 (4): 403. 1993.
    A major facet of the bioethics phenomenon in North America has been the emergence of a new profession on the healthcare turf: a growing number of people calling themselves or being called “bioethicists.” Bioethicists are plying their trade mainly as ethics consultants in hospital settings and as researchers and educators with university affiliations. Other more questionable affiliations can easily be imagined: Bioethicist for a controversial transplant program? For a lobby or advocacy group? For…Read more
