Coping with Physicians’ Conflicts of Interest in France
During the French Revolution, the state assumed the Catholic Church's moral authority and charitable functions and enshrined the idea of the common good in secular public law. It also replaced occupational guilds and corporations with state supervision of public professions and private occupational groups. Today, the state attempts to regulate individual pursuits of private interests that conflict with its conception of the public interest. This chapter discusses how this approach shapes French ideas about conflicts of interest and the state's response.
