A correct and an augmented medical act.

M S Marques


The author describes a correct medical procedure and what may be called an augmented medical procedure. Reference is made to some of the formal and material conditions and bases of clinical deliberation. It is shown why one should reread Hippocrates, Aristotle and other physicians and philosophers who considered these issues.

This paper provides a clear position on the value and significance of individual responsibility.
