The Meaning of Death and the Goal of Medicine: An Augustinian and Barthian Reassessment

<span class="paragraphSection"><div class="boxTitle">Abstract</div>This article explores medicine’s goals as they relate to the meaning of death and finitude through the lens of Jeffrey Bishop and Daniel Callahan. It concludes that arguments posed by these authors regarding death and medicine cohere with many rich Christian theological claims about the nature of life and death. Turning to St. Augustine and Karl Barth, one sees that the meaning of death and finitude ties to our theological anthropology as vulnerable creatures in relation to God. Understanding a transcendent meaning to death and life informs the limits to medicine’s institutional goals and practices.</span>
