Christianity

Suicidal ideation, no crystal balls, conscientious objection, and Hippocrates’ successful medical practice
Advances in technology mean intelligent machines are likely to play an increasingly important role in our future
Judicial activism, a ‘reasonably foreseeable’ death, the unacceptability of suffering, and reasons to stay alive
A mucky business, the ultimate conspiracy theory, ‘showbiz for ugly people’, and and atomised individuals
‘None of us can avoid fundamental questions about what it means to be human. These issues are far too important to be left to doctors’
Emotional resilience, the bio-psycho-social model, the power of story, and depression in the Psalms
Power dynamics, the psychiatrist as brick wall, casualties of social media, and over-pathologising distress
The Panopticon at home, evangelising to retirees, existential angst in the House of Lords, and rejecting self-sufficiency
The ars moriendi, open casket funerals in Derry Girls, the end of Christendom and ethical quietism
Overlap with Catholicism, chronological snobbery, rejecting one-size-fits-all ethics, and ‘worldly’ versus ‘spiritual’ matters
