Abstract:   (11893 Views)
Adherence to ethical standards in the medical profession is one of the fundamental principles of the traditional Iranian medicine, and its significance is reflected in the words and works of founders of this school of medicine. One particularly valuable source is the esteemed work by the Iranian scholar Hakim Seyed Mohammad Hussein Aghili Khorasani Shirazi entitled “Kholasat-Al-Hekmat”, which was written more than two centuries ago. The present paper is a descriptive library research on this work. One significant characteristic of this book is the author’s careful attention to details in clarifying the principles of medical ethics. Although the “four principles” approach to medical ethics is a relatively recent concept in modern medicine, it has been fastidiously expounded and evaluated in Iranian works on medicine. For young physicians and researchers, being familiar with such sources and their analysis and comparison based on principles of modern medical ethics is a clear indication of the humoral medicine being deep-rooted and ethics based. The present study aimed to investigate and analyze medical ethics as presented in Kholasat-Al-Hekmat.
