Neuroscience affords knowledge that can be leveraged in the ontological valuation of individuals, groups, and species. Sociocultural sentiments, norms, and mores may impede embracing such knowledge to revise moral attitudes, ethics, and policies. We argue that the practices of neuroethics will be valuable in that they ground ethico-legal discourse in ...

The very term `professional ethics' is puzzling with respect to what both `professional' and `ethics' might mean.

The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) had distinguished itself in previous decades as a producer of excellent "antithrombotic" guidelines used worldwide; guidelines that dealt simply and primarily with evidence and not opinion.
