    From the Anticipatory Corpse to the Participatory Body.M. Therese Lysaught - 2016 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 41 (6):585-596.
    Jeffrey Bishop’s The Anticipatory Corpse demonstrates how death is present in and cloaked by contemporary practices of end-of-life care. A key to Bishop’s argument is that for modern medicine the cadaver has become epistemologically normative and that a metaphysics shorn of formal and final causes now shapes contemporary healthcare practices. The essays of this symposium laud and interrogate Bishop’s argument in three ways. First, they raise critical methodological challenges from the perspectives of human rights, Charles Taylor’s concept of social imaginaries, (...)

    Docile Bodies: Transnational Research Ethics as Biopolitics.M. T. Lysaught - 2009 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 34 (4):384-408.
    This essay explores the claim that bioethics has become a mode of biopolitics. It seeks to illuminate one of the myriad of ways that bioethics joins other institutionalized discursive practices in the task of producing, organizing, and managing the bodies—of policing and controlling populations—in order to empower larger institutional agents. The focus of this analysis is the contemporary practice of transnational biomedical research. The analysis is catalyzed by the enormous transformation in the political economy of transnational research that has occurred (...)

    Suffering, Ethics, and the Body of Christ: Anointing as a Strategic Alternative Practice.M. T. Lysaught - 1996 - Christian Bioethics 2 (2):172-201.
    Within the moral/social order maintained and reproduced by biomedical ethics (i.e., the “peaceable community”), suffering is a senseless accident with no value. Insofar as suffering compromises the fundamental pillar of this order, namely, autonomy, it threatens the existence of the “peaceable community”. Consequently, biomedical ethics is only able to offer those who suffer one moral or practical response: that of elimination, embodied most vividly in the increasingly approved practice of assisted-suicide. Another moral/ social order, however, the “peaceable Kingdom” or the (...)

    Vicious Trauma: Race, Bodies and the Confounding of Virtue Ethics.M. Therese Lysaught & Cory D. Mitchell - 2022 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 42 (1):75-100.
    This essay asks: How do the realities of embodied trauma inflicted by racism interface with virtue theory? This question illuminates two lacunae in virtue theory. The first is attention to race. We argue that the contemporary academic virtue literature performs largely as a White space, failing to address virtue theory’s role in the social construction of race, ignoring the rich and vibrant resources on virtue ethics alive within the Black theological tradition that long antedates Alasdair MacIntyre’s After Virtue, and segregating (...)

    A Social Praxis for US Health Care: Revisioning Catholic Bioethics via Catholic Social Thought.M. Therese Lysaught & Michael McCarthy - 2018 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 38 (2):111-130.
    Catholic health care has long been a key place where the Church embodies its social doctrine. However, the moral methodology that shapes Catholic bioethics relies on an act-based approach to decision making, which is rooted in the pre–Vatican II manualist tradition, focusing primarily on clinical issues related to the beginning and end of life. This essay argues that given the doctrinal status of Catholic social thought, Catholic bioethics must revisit its scope and methodology. It proceeds in three steps: a meta-analysis (...)

    Practicing the Order of Widows: A New Call for an Old Vocation.M. Therese Lysaught - 2005 - Christian Bioethics 11 (1):51-68.
    This essay argues for a renewed institution of an ancient Christian practice, the Order of Widows. Drawing on the Roman Catholic tradition’s recent writings on the elderly, particularly the 1998 document from the Pontifical Council for the Laity entitled “The Dignity of Older People and their Mission in the Church and in the World,” I argue that we find within the Roman Catholic tradition advocacy for a renewed understanding of the vocation of the elderly within the Church. Building on this, (...)

  12. Beyond Stewardship: Reordering the Economic Imagination of Catholic Health Care.M. Therese Lysaught - 2020 - Christian Bioethics 26 (1):31-55.
    The principle of stewardship has come to play a significant role in the consciousness of Catholic health care. This is a recent development correlative with changes in the economic configurations of Catholic health care in the latter two decades of the twentieth century, as well as with the striking ascendance of the principle within US Catholic culture during the same period. Yet while the concept of stewardship seems to be an unobjectionable given central to Catholic practice, I argue that in (...)

    Catholic health care is one of the key places where the church lives Catholic social teaching (CST). Yet the individualistic methodology of Catholic bioethics inherited from the manualist tradition has yet to incorporate this critical component of the Catholic moral tradition. Informed by the places where Catholic health care intersects with the diverse societal injustices embodied in the patients it encounters, this book brings the lens of CST to bear on Catholic health care, illuminating a new spectrum of ethical issues (...)

    Geographies and Accompaniment: Toward an Ecclesial Re-ordering of the Art of Dying.M. Therese Lysaught - 2016 - Studies in Christian Ethics 29 (3):286-293.
    This article identifies three geographical shifts that have altered the relative social, spatial and temporal locations of dying, church and health care, and axiology causally contributing to our culture’s deformed dying processes. It proposes an alternative script for a new art of dying drawing upon the early church’s practice of the order of widows.

    Medicine as Friendship with God: Anointing the Sick as a Theological Hermeneutic.M. Therese Lysaught - 2009 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 29 (1):171-191.
    A THEOLOGICAL BIOETHICS NEEDS, FIRST, A THEOLOGICAL POLITICS. THE thesis of this essay rests on the claim that the contours of a theological politics are found in the nature of sacramental practices. More specifically, a theological politics of medicine is found in the sacramental practice of anointing of the sick. Anointing provides a radically theological hermeneutic—a theologically robust vision for interpreting medicine that, if enacted, can powerfully make real God's work in the world. Such a vision is embodied in one (...)
