Your use of language and command of English appear commendable - you have adopted the application of a range of vocabulary, have used correct grammar and punctuation, and used a good balance of second and third person sentences.
The citing of different examples of learning in humanity and the earth has been demonstrated well. One deficiency I note is that there is no specific reference to the relevance of the topic to medicine: This is evident in instances of errors caused by medical personnel who have inadequate knowledge or experience, but more often by lay members of the public.
Very good examples of this are: In summary and in general terms, a very good essay technique with the provisos a read the Q very carefully b try to relate at least part of it to medicine if possible. I hope this helps! M former medical student. Follow 3 F4Justin Just to alert you to my above post.

Yes I am just looking for feedback on my essay. Should my examples all be related to medicine or should I have other non medicine-related examples too? What kind of examples do you think are preferred? Specific examples or general examples? After all, the essay is just limited to 1 page thus I am not sure how much focus should I put on my examples. I look forward to your reply.

Follow 4 Well if no one wants to give it a shot, I'll start it off. Bare in mind that the marking criteria can be found at: Why might probity be important in a good doctor?
Under what circumstances might an honest doctor be justified in revealing patient details in the course of their professional practice?
It also implies the doctor should act with integrity and honesty, avoiding lying to the patient or being dishonest about their condition or any treatment. Probity is a very important quality of any good doctor. Being honest is morally, ethically and professionally right. A dishonest doctor could, for instance, succeed in steering a patient towards a particular treatment simply through his words.
This situation goes against patient autonomy — a key pillar of ethics. This is not good practice and not the best course of action for the patient.
A good doctor would always be honest as being dishonest in this way has legal implications, and if the patient is unwillingly treated, then the doctor is liable to face charges of battery. In this way a good, honest doctor could improve treatment, as the patient would be more willing to disclose personal information that could be key for treatment.
For example, a nervous teenager might be unwilling to reveal a drug or alcohol history to a doctor who appears untrustworthy. In addition, a lack of honesty and mistrust may well lead patients to look elsewhere for treatment or, indeed, abandon their treatment altogether. This situation would greatly disadvantage the patient, who would continue to live without treatment and potentially face complications as a result.
A good, honest doctor should breach patient confidentiality in some situations. Primarily this is because the doctor believes the lives of others are in danger.
If the patient leads the doctor to believe the patient is a member of a terrorist cell, then disclosing this to the police would be generally acceptable.
A third example, similar the previous two, is if the patient is diagnosed with a contagious and dangerous disease that could easily have affected those around the patient before hospital admission. In this case, the relevant authorities would have to be told so they can inform potential infectees and further action can be taken to both treat them and prevent pathogen spread. Admittedly, there are only a few, rare situations when an honest doctor should breach patient confidentiality, but it is necessary sometimes.
Follow 5 I have an essay, and I would greatly appreciate it if I got some criticism: Progress must always be welcomed. Write a unified essay in which you address the following: Define 'progress' in an objective way. Explain why it could be argued that progress, as you have defined it, might not always be welcomed. Discuss, giving examples, the circumstances that influence whether or not progress should be welcomed. Progress can be defined as the ascension from a state of relative ignorance into one of higher awareness, as applied to a field of scientific, philosophical, technological or religious interest.
However, in the broadest sense of the word, progress can be seen as anything's advancement in its path of development. Such as the physiological and pathological processes that play out in bringing about terminal cancer. It can be argued that this type of progress which would entail the sufferer's demise, would not be welcomed.
Conversely, on the onset of the disease, if the patient's suffering had reached a point where toleration was futile, the progression of the disease to the patient's life may indeed be welcomed. So it is important to recognise the differing attitudes to certain types of progress over time.
Therefore, in essence, any progress that compromises the safety, health, or rights of any individual, should not be welcomed. As was the case of British biophysicist and X-ray crystallographer, Rosalind Franklin whose pioneering work on DNA, came at the cost of her developing ovarian cancer, and losing her life at the age of The essential progress in an area of science and medicine that produced the completion of the Human Genome Project, had essentially also taken a life. What remains to be said is can human life ever be sacrificed in the name of science?

A scientific man must have no wishes, no affections - a mere heart of stone. Argue for this and against Darwin is referring to the lack of emotion and the accurate nature of the scientific method.
One does not need to have emotion or wishes as they will merely convolute or influence the accuracy and nature of a precise scientific experiment. Accuracy is what distinguishes science from philosophy, scientists employ the use of empirical evidence to support their findings. Wishes are unnecessary in science as the may obscure your rational view of an experiment or the results of one.
Wishes and affections greatly influence a human's behaviour and hence, his or her rationality. A decrease in rationality flaws an experiment. Science is, and must be, rational, therefore, one must be completely rational while conducting an experiment or simply executing anything of a scientific nature.
Commitment is also a prerequisite to be a successful scientist, emotions obscure ones view of commitment and cause one to become distracted from the task at present, thereby flawing the accuracy of the task.
Conversely, one can argue that wishes and affections are a vital component of the scientific method. The statement by Darwin is slightly oxymoronic, as if you are "a scientific man" you have a love, an affection for science, so in a sense, an affection and wish to conduct experiments and contribute to science is necessary to do science itself.
Affections are powerful mechanisms that can enable one to spend many hours rationalizing that final equation or simply flawing ever step of an experiment.

Argue that scientific enquiry benefits from personal wishes and affections. The statement implies that those studying science are emotionless with regards to their work and should in fact distance their wishes and affections from their study. It suggests that involving emotions with your work can be of detriment to those whose main is the pursuit of justification; it details that perhaps having these characteristics could impede the scientific they carry out.
However, without these very characteristics, surely science would not exist? Human nature clearly evokes the need to seek the reasons underpinning our existence and the world around us. Surely without our wishes and affections, there would be no driving force underpinning our desire to understand.
Consequently, the study all things, not just science, would not exist as our notion to study is inextricably linked to our desire for knowledge. The quest for knowledge transcends from our humanistic wish to understand. In addition to this, it could be postulated that in fact affection is required by a scientific man as although their primary aim is to understand, our scientific advancement is constrained by our own ethical parameters. Alan Coleman, the prolific creator of the Dolly the Sheep has described his dilemma when creating her.
Although, he knew that the work he was doing would perhaps help meet unmet medical needs he detailed that he is in fact against human cloning. This is a clear example of the dilemma and the acknowledgement required as a scientific man to understand the consequences of their work. Although we could say that scientific advancement may be hindered by our ethics, it is perhaps these very ethics which redirect us to the science we should pursue: However, admittedly within science there exists a facet which requires absolute removal of our wishes and affections which is in the context of experiments.
Our wishes and affections could influence experiments and therefore could and render invalid the interpretations of these experiments, which would be detrimental in our aim to dispel our own ignorance.
Science is wholly based on empirical science and the intermingling of our wishes and affections could be of detriment to our understanding. The empirical nature which science is wholly base upon leaves no margin for errors which our wishes and affections could impinge on.
In conclusion, affection and wishes are required in abundance as these are the very characteristics which initially fuel our desire inquire into the world around us, without this we would not possess the drive to dispel our ignorance and deepen our understanding. However, our wishes and affections should be controlled to a degree to prevent these negatively affecting our aim to understand. Instead, it needs to be constrained in certain environments in order for the science that a scientific man preaches, to be rendered valid.
