ABSTRACT

The importance of the ethical attitude required of medical Practitioner is one of the most important issues in the increasingly complex medical field. The primary goal required of medical Practitioner is to improve the health of patients through disease treatment and disease prevention. This goal implies that healthcare workers are essentially ethical. Here we are compelled to think about how the relationship between the patient and the healthcare provider should be established. In other words, medical practice itself is directly related to the dignity of human life, so it can be said that ethical reflection is essential. I can select “love” and “Detached Concern” as the ethical attitudes that medical professionals need. The medical practice of a medical practitioner is bound to include not only the technical and objective parts, but also the emotional parts. Based on the emotional domain, the human nature needed in this medical field is, after all, “love”. In this paper, we will look at some scholars who have philosophical analysis of “love” and consider whether it is justifiable to make it the ethical attitude of medical professionals in the medical field. Finally, the ethical attitude of “love” has a problematic element that can hinder the correct judgment of medical Practitioner. To solve this, I philosophically analyze the ethical attitude of “Detached Concern” and try to secure its legitimacy.
