The book Health and Ethics stems from the need to divulge the knowledge and emotions shared by students and professors during the first lessons of Moral Philosophy, led by Professors Pacifici Noja and Boccanelli. A spontaneous bond which had arisen amongst the two counterparts, led to an innovative model of creative interaction. The students, divided into 17 groups, had to choose among different themes suggested by the professors, according to their preferences and personal interests. The themes range among many fields, but they have one purpose in common: highlighting and studying the different relationships bonded between the physician and the patient. Therefore, the book was designed to be an important resource for the comprehension and the understanding of both the difficulties and the duties a physician needs to face, but also of the satisfaction and happiness which can arise from them.
