The themes of the previous chapters are brought together in Chapter 7 through the introduction of a series of cases. In contrast to standard depictions of third-person case vignettes, distorted and over-simplified by the heuristic purposes they serve, a new method of case presentation is employed here that attempts to capture the inner world of the practitioner as well as the dynamic ebb and flow of the interchange between patient(s) and practitioner during particular “moments” in the therapeutic session. This demonstrates previous emphasis on the moral psychology and character of the practitioner.

Keywords:   biomedical cases, inner monologue, “just so” stories, moral psychology, narrative theory
