Communitarians and medical ethicists: or "why I am none of the above".

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Recent medical ethics has been shaped by liberal presuppositions, but in challenging those assumptions, Christians must be careful not to adopt communitarian assumptions instead, which tend to promote community as a good in itself. Rather, argues Stanley Hauerwas, Christians should attend to the virtues of their own tradition, regarding community as an instrumental good in fostering that tradition.
