Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics

I've only just realised that I have access to the journal Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics, a treasure trove of interesting articles. For example from Volume 19, Number 3 / June, 1998 we have Norbert Paul:
Incurable suffering from the “hiatus theoreticus”? Some epistemological problems in modern medicine and the clinical relevance of philosophy of medicine.
And from the next issue, Volume 19, Number 4 / August, 1998, we have Edmund Pellegrino
What the Philosophy Of Medicine Is.
Essential reading when I finally get around to preparing my Philosophy of Medicine course.
