Renowned nursing scholars including Jacqueline Fawcett, Barbara Carper, and Rozella Schlotfeldt address a topic of increasing importance and concern to nursing researchers and theorists--the need for philosophical inquiry in nursing. They offer a diversity of viewpoints concerning the nature of philosophical questions in nursing and the uses of philosophy by nurses in their attempts to address epistemological, ethical, and metaphysical questions about nursing issues. They clearly reflect the current state of philosophical inquiry in nursing, and provide a foundation for future thought in this area. This pathbreaking volume is an essential step in developing a nursing philosophical basis and in encouraging philosophical research. Philosophic Inquiry in Nursing is appropriate for philosophers, theorists, and researchers in nursing as well as advanced students in these areas. "Philosophic Inquiry in Nursing is a significant and unique contribution to the literature. It will be cited as a landmark publication in the further development and use of philosophical inquiry." --Journal of Professional Nursing "The volume should be required reading for all doctoral students in nursing and faculty members teaching nursing theory at the graduate level because the book presents in-depth philosophical content and debate unlike other existing nursing theory texts." --Nursing Research "This is a balanced volume which goes out of its way to present diverse approaches to its topics. . . . There is hardly a page in my copy that does not, from my first reading, have either marked passages that I have found useful or interesting or scribbled comments and arguments." --Nursing Ethics
