Online discussion with Prof. Juliette Ferry-Danini (Please visit her personal website here.)
Contact Prof. Kaliane Ung (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the Zoom link.
Join us for an online discussion on empathy and compassion in the medical humanities.
Prof. Juliette Ferry-Danini (University of Toronto) is a philosopher of medicine interested in conceptual, epistemological and ethical questions. By contrasting different contemporary humanistic approaches in the philosophy of medicine (narrative medicine, phenomenology of medicine), her talk will propose a definition of “humanism” in medicine. We will focus on French author Hervé Guibert's novel Compassion Protocol (1991) as a case study to assess empathy and compassion in healthcare.
Sponsored by the Dept. of French and Italian and the Center for Bioethics.
