ACU Philosophy Department Seminar Series, presents:

Justin Oakley (Monash Bioethics Centre)

'Empirically-informed medical virtue from the inside out and back again'

Abstract: In recent years there has been much work on applications of virtue ethics to medical practice, and various policy implications of this approach are now being investigated. Some of these accounts now draw on more empirically-informed approaches to virtue which have been articulated in contemporary philosophy. However, there has so far been little consideration of how these practical and policy applications of virtue ethics can in turn be used to shape a realistic and justifiable moral psychology of medical virtue. In this presentation I consider what these more empirically-informed applications of virtue ethics to medical practice and policy might demonstrate about the nature of medical virtues. In doing so I discuss what can reasonably be expected in plausible conceptions of medical virtues, which can then be used to evaluate medical practice and policy.
