The preparation of a one-volume history of medical ethics from antiquity to the twentieth century that will be global and comparative in its treatment.

The applicants propose to help bioethicists to gain historical perspective on their field by making basic information about, and scholarly interpretations of, medical ethics past available to their colleagues in a one-volume history of medical ethics to be published by Cambridge University Press. A History of Modern Medical Ethics, the first contemporary, English-language history of medical ethics, will be authoritative, affordable, and accessible to bioethicists, to social historians and to historians of medicine, to general audiences in the humanities, to health care professionals and health professions educators, and to interested members of the public. The volume will represent a global history of the discourses of medical ethics (of religion and philosophy, of practitioners, of patients, and of bioethics), interpretive essays (e.g. on economics and medical ethics), and an extensive reference section (of biographies, summaries of key concepts and texts, bibliographies, and timelines). It should become the essential departure point for future teaching and scholarship and help bring bioethics to maturity as a field of the humanities.
