  1. “Personal Knowledge” in Medicine and the Epistemic Shortcomings of Scientism.Hugh Marshall McHugh & Simon Thomas Walker - 2015 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 12 (4):577-585.
    In this paper, we outline a framework for understanding the different kinds of knowledge required for medical practice and use this framework to show how scientism undermines aspects of this knowledge. The framework is based on Michael Polanyi’s claim that knowledge is primarily the product of the contemplations and convictions of persons and yet at the same time carries a sense of universality because it grasps at reality. Building on Polanyi’s ideas, we propose that knowledge can be described along two (...)

  • Public Health Autonomy: A Critical Reappraisal.Frederick J. Zimmerman - 2017 - Hastings Center Report 47 (6):38-45.
    The ethical principle of autonomy is among the most fundamental in ethics, and it is particularly salient for those in public health, who must constantly balance the desire to improve health outcomes by changing behavior with respect for individual freedom. Although there are some areas in which there is a genuine tension between public health and autonomy—childhood vaccine mandates, for example—there are many more areas where not only is there no tension, but public health and autonomy come down to the (...)

  • Model biomedyczny w psychopatologii. Krytyczny szkic historyczny, współczesny kontekst i problemy etyczne.Radosław Stupak - 2020 - Diametros 17 (66):1-18.
    Artykuł prezentuje krytyczny szkic historyczny i charakterystykę biomedycznego modelu psychopatologii, koncentrując się na drugiej połowie XX w. Wskazuje i opisuje także kluczowe problemy związane z jego dominacją we współczesnej praktyce klinicznej i badawczej. Problemy te dotyczą, m. in., trafności i rzetelności diagnoz psychiatrycznych, metodologii badań, skuteczności leczenia, czy też wpływów koncernów farmaceutycznych na działalność naukową i terapeutyczną. Poważne konceptualne problemy całego modelu stawiają pod znakiem zapytania fundamenty współczesnej psychiatrii oraz opartą na nich wiedzę. Nie udało się stworzyć przekonujących biologicznych wyjaśnień (...)

  • Retractions in the scientific literature: is the incidence of research fraud increasing?R. Grant Steen - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (4):249-253.
    Next SectionBackground Scientific papers are retracted for many reasons including fraud (data fabrication or falsification) or error (plagiarism, scientific mistake, ethical problems). Growing attention to fraud in the lay press suggests that the incidence of fraud is increasing. Methods The reasons for retracting 742 English language research papers retracted from the PubMed database between 2000 and 2010 were evaluated. Reasons for retraction were initially dichotomised as fraud or error and then analysed to determine specific reasons for retraction. Results Error was (...)

  • “Snake-oil,” “quack medicine,” and “industrially cultured organisms:” biovalue and the commercialization of human microbiome research. [REVIEW]Melody J. Slashinski, Sheryl A. McCurdy, Laura S. Achenbaum, Simon N. Whitney & Amy L. McGuire - 2012 - BMC Medical Ethics 13 (1):28-.
    Background Continued advances in human microbiome research and technologies raise a number of ethical, legal, and social challenges. These challenges are associated not only with the conduct of the research, but also with broader implications, such as the production and distribution of commercial products promising maintenance or restoration of good physical health and disease prevention. In this article, we document several ethical, legal, and social challenges associated with the commercialization of human microbiome research, focusing particularly on how this research is (...)
