The Measure of the Person
This chapter discusses three kinds of information, namely: empirical facts, value-laden terms, and aesthetic. It shows that these kinds of information about sick persons are necessary to the work of clinicians, and also attempts to show that clinicians treat particular patients in particular circumstances at particular moments in time, thus requiring information that particularizes the individual and the moment.
