Professor, Bioethics and Law Initiative Tel Aviv University Sackler Faculty of Medicine (IL)


The research area of our group is Medical Humanities, relying on theoretical methods with the occasional excursion to qualitative research.

My own personal interests encompass moral theory and the intersections among bioethics, social history, and related normative domains, such as law and religion, especially Halakhah (Jewish religious law). I explore human rights law and international humanitarian law in the light of the contemporary ethical and meta-ethical discourse. Another aspect of my work aims at developing a better understanding and tools of deliberation in bioethics as a psycho-moral process and as socially constructed events of legitimization and education. I am intrigued by the incorporation of the history and philosophy of ideas such as conscience, responsibility, hope, and doubt in clinical reality and medical education.
