Bogdan Chiorean. THE ALTERITY BETWEEN THE THEOLOGICAL DISCOURSE AND MEDICAL PRACTICE. Revista Romana de Bioetica, 7, 2009.

Abstract: Alterity, as a theological discourse, involves anthropology, gnoseology, hristology and ecclesiology. Daily, we find ourselves settled socially, politically, economically, familially, but fundamentally, spiritually, in the shadow of revelation of mystery of the Other, an Other just as how he shows himself to us, how love makes himself known to us and we make ourselves known to him. On the other hand, we observe how medical praxis is, surely, the most obvious form of alterity. The author tries to demonstrate - without pretending to make an exhaustive study on a very rich topic and a serious problem - the ontologic relation between alterity in the theological discourse, and the one practised in medical acts.

Keywords: alterity, deontology, professional ethics
