Doctors, Honour and the Law: Medical Ethics in Imperial Germany by Andreas-Holger Maehle


pdf epub fb2 djvu



Medical ethics in Imperial Germany were entangled with professional, legal and social issues. This book shows how doctors ethical decision-making was led by their notions of male honor, professional politics and a paternalistic doctor-patient relationship rather than concern for patients interests or the right of the sick to self-determination.
