The book 'Medical Ethics III Ayurveda' written by a well known authoress Dr. P.V. Tewari is probably the first book on the subject, dealing with all aspects of ethics; earlier written one book discusses only surgical ethics of ayurveda. In ayurvedic classics medical and social ethics etc. all are very intricately interwoven with each other, to separate them becomes difficult. Yet sincere effort has been made to present different aspects of medical ethics under specific chapters. Over lapping though present, yet is minimal, as it was unavoidable in order to present complete picture of the subject.
Subject matter and discussions are strictly maintained within the framework of description available in ayurvedic classics and to autheaticate the statements relevant references from the classics are recapitulated, which will also facilitate the readers to form their own openion without searching the ayurvedic classics.
Points relevant to current medical ethics of modern medicine are mentioned in the appendix, in order to facilitate the reader to understand high standard medical ethics practised in golden era of ayurveda.
It is hoped that the book will disseminate the knowledge of medical ethics as given in ayurveda and will prove to be beneficial to students teachers and also researchers.
