Does the philosophy of medicine exist? A commentary on Caplan
Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 15 (1) (1994)
AbstractCaplan has argued that the philosophy of medicine does not exist. Although I will not deny the points he makes, I will argue that the philosophy of medicine has characteristics of a developing field with the potential to meet all of Caplan's criteria. The argument is based on Dewey's established views on logical development for a field of inquiry, as well as pointing out how other criteria Caplan imposes can be fulfilled.
