    Professionalism, Organizationalism and Sur-Moralism: Three Ethical Systems for Physicians.Jonathan Bolton - 2022 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 25 (1):153-159.
    Over the last 50 years, the term professionalism has undergone a widespread expansion in its use and a semantic shift in its meaning. As a result, it is at risk of losing its descriptive and analytical value and becoming instead simply an empty evaluative label, a fate described by C. S. Lewis as ‘verbicide’. This article attempts to rescue professionalism from this fate by down-sizing its extension and reassigning some of its work to two other ethical domains, introduced as the (...)

    Mendacity, Rule Consequentialist Ethics and The Ploughman's Lunch.Jonathan Bolton - 2022 - Film-Philosophy 26 (1):26-43.
    This article examines Ian McEwan's script for director Richard Eyre's film, The Ploughman's Lunch, the title of which alludes to a deceptive, post-World War II advertising campaign that promulgated a false narrative about British tradition. McEwan's script, and Eyre's film adaptation of it, offer a prescient exposé of Britain's culture of mendacity in the 1980s in ways that draw on rule-consequentialist ethics to maintain that lying on the personal, professional, and political level has a pernicious effect on society. McEwan's work (...)

    Between the Quack and the Fanatic: Movements in Our Self-Belief. [REVIEW]Jonathan Bolton - 2011 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 14 (3):281-285.
    Separate from the question of whether our patients believe us as doctors is the question of whether we ourselves believe in our healing ‘performances’. Borrowing from Bernard Williams’ model of truth based on the two irreducible virtues of sincerity and accuracy, this article describes a spectrum of states of self-belief, from the quack who does not believe in his acts to the fanatic who does not ‘dis-believe’, with ranges of pious fraud and bad faith in between and on either side (...)
