Some widely held beliefs about the goals of medicine are: we know what they are, they have always been the same, and they do not conflict with each other. In this book all these beliefs are questioned. It will be shown that when trying to achieve the ends of medicine at different times old goals have changed and new ones appeared. Between different medical goals tensions and clashes exist which may cause difficult ethical problems.
