This text examines the dominant ways of looking at patient/clinician relationships in healthcare. By challenging these dominant views the author can explore presuppositions that are defective. She further explains how they come to be so readily and uncritically held and reinforced; and, why their implications can have such a profound affect on how we think and act. Using the methodology of philosopher, John Dewey, the author proposes an alternative bio/psycho/social approach to understanding the patient/clinician relationship and for resolving increasingly common bioethical issues that arise in healthcare settings.

In this groundbreaking book, J. Patrick Dobel describes and analyzes the elements that constitute integrity in public office. Drawing on case studies, memoirs, interviews, and fiction (e.g., John Le Carre), Dobel addresses such issues as when to resign and when to stay in office. He examines the temptations of power, the relation between private and public life, and the role of honor and prudence in making personal decisions. He applies not only moral theory but also the insights of history, organizational theory, and psychology. Unlike most political ethics books, "Public Integrity" puts personal responsibility at the center of public morality, examining not just the responsibilities of office but also the role of personal moral commitments and promises. This timely book reminds us of the importance of public integrity as well as the demands and challenges that often threaten that integrity, especially in a liberal democracy such as the United States.

These essays by a group of South African researchers from diverse cultural backgrounds - bring to light a transcendent dimension of our human nature that is often overlooked in the international science-and-religion debate. This is a dimension of our humanity that transcends what the sciences are able to study because it is what enables us to be the creators and judges of science. It is also what endows us with the freedom and responsibility of deciding which, if any, religion to follow. These essays bring together insights, drawn from both European and African traditions of thought, that illuminate this ultimately mysterious dimension of our humanity.
