Is it something physicians and ethical theorists do constructively together? Or is it a morally concentrated attack on high technology, with the prac­ titioners of scientific medicine and the medical ethicists in an adversarial role? Is it a conservative endeavor, exhibiting a Frankenstein syn­ drome in Medical Genetics ("this time, they have gone too far"), or a Clockwork Orange syndrome in Psychotherapy ("we have met­ hods to make you talk-walk-cry-kill")? Or does it suffer the afflic­ tion of overdependency on the informal fallacy of the Slippery Slope ("one step down this hill and we will never be able to stop") that remains an informal fallacy no matter how frequently it's used? Is it a restricted endeavor of analytic philosophy: what is the meaning of "disease," how is "justice" used in the allocation of medical resources, what constitutes "informed" or "consent?" Is it applied ethics, leading in clinical practice to some recommenda­ tion for therapeutic or preventive action? This incomplete list of questions indicates just how complex,
