The spiritual counselor exists, but where is the ethicist?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

An ethicist is a former theologian without the qualifications of a moral philosopher. On the basis of this provocative statement by Gustafson, I argue that we still do not really know what the term "ethicist" covers. Spiritual carers, on the other hand, do have a solid professional profile and can present themselves as spiritual caregivers with competence area ethics (support).
