Assessing Gregory’s Medical Ethics
I turn now to the task of assessing Gregorys medical ethics. I do so in three parts. First, I consider how Gregory’s work was received and understood by his contemporaries, for which there is limited documentary evidence. Second, I examine briefly his influence — mainly on subsequent work on medical ethics in Britain and North America, and, very briefly, on European medical ethics — during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Third, I will argue for the importance of Gregory’s medical ethics for contemporary bioethics.
