Acknowledgments

I would like to express my deep gratitude to the following colleagues who provided me with detailed critical reactions to this manuscript: H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr., Ph.D., M.D.; George Khushf, Ph.D.; Susan LaGaipa, M.S., R.N.; Laurence McCullough, Ph.D.; Jonathan Moreno, Ph.D.; E. Haavi Morreim, Ph.D.; Benjamin Phillips, M.S., R.N.; and Stuart Spicker, Ph.D.

A parallel debt should also be acknowledged to my clinical colleagues in the Buffalo medical community who helped me gain insight into the realities of clinical medicine. John Banas, M.D.; William Coles, M.D.; Jack Freer, M.D.; and Paul Katz, M.D., merit special thanks in this regard. Norman Chassin, M.D., also deserves singling out, especially for his extended and patient attempt to help me see that the tradition of physician beneficence was truly worthy of the name, however much we may continue to quarrel about its specific pronouncements. Special thanks are also due to Gerald Logue, M.D., and Paul Davis, M.D., who encouraged and supported me in my work in clinical medicine as an ethics consultant, and provided me with access to their patients and staff.

Finally, a special note of appreciation is due to H. Tristram Engelhardt, Jr., Ph.D., M.D., and Laurence McCullough, Ph.D., not only for their assistance with this book, but especially for their sustained support, encouragement, understanding, and friendship over the years.
