VERGARA, Oscar. Hermeneutics and decision making in clinical ethics. Rev. Bioét. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.2, pp.255-263. ISSN 1983-8042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1983-80422017252185.

Modern hermeneutics deals with the conditions of the possibilities of human understanding. Its contributions are particularly pertinent to clinical ethics, where patient and doctor seek to mutually understand one another in order to establish a determined care plan. Nevertheless, this approach is far from useful for the formulation of a concrete standard for decision making in this area. Hermeneutics is effective in putting the focus on dialogue, rather than method. But it overlooks the fact that dialogue, according to Gadamer, is directed towards truth. The present article aims to highlight this point, and seeks to establish the connection between this notion of truth and ideas of good, history and community.

Palavras-chave : Ethics, clinical; Hermeneutics; Decision making.
