The Nature of Suffering and the Goals of Medicine

Second Edition

Eric J. Cassell

This is a revised and expanded edition of a classic in palliative medicine, originally published in 1991. With three added chapters and a new preface summarizing our progress in the area of pain management, this is a must-have for those in palliative medicine and hospice care. In addition, Cassell's thoughtful and incisive argument will appeal to psychologists and psychiatrists interested in the nature of pain and suffering.
