Abstract

In this paper, I try to review the rebirth of the philosophy of medicine with the development of bioethics in last 30 years. First of all, I will argue how the philosophy of medicine accepted the influence of bioethics. Especially, I will make clear the new concept of disease which is a most important concept in the philosophy of medicine. And I will discuss the recent arguments of the relation between the philosophy of science and bioethics concerning their influence on the philosophy of medicine. Finally, I conclude that bioethics resuscitated the philosophy of medicine in which the viewpoint of patients is respected.
