Pour une philosophie clinique des greffes de mains et de visage : histoire, épistémologie, éthique

Abstract : This work aims at building a clinical philosophy of transplantations, especially in regards to hand and face allografts; this means a philosophy rooted in the experience of care and that of the patients. The history of the establishment of transplantation as an efficient procedure, from the beginning of the twentieth century to the 1960s, is examined: it helps understand the unexpected challenges that had to be met, and how these procedures are subject to precise and restrictive conditions. This critical epistemology then allows to approach the ethical questions raised by composite tissue allografts. These procedures have given birth to intense debate, to which the clinic has already partially brought answers. But other ethical problems remain, which are considered by describing the delicate conditions for choosing the procedure and by interrogating the norms legitimating this risky procedure as a cure for severe handicaps.
