Chapter Summary

This chapter compares and contrasts the professional ethics of pharmacists, as they appear in chapters one and twenty-three of Minhāj al-dukkān, with the professional ethics of physicians. The majority of work on Islamic medical ethics has centered on the physician, yet physicians are only one category among many of healthcare professionals. The chapter presents certain aspects of the professional ethics of pharmacists in the medieval Islamic world, so as to elucidate the differences between the conception of the 'good pharmacist' and that of the 'good physician,' as well as to indicate what they have in common.

Keywords: medieval Islamic world; Minhāj al-dukkān; pharmacists; physicians; professional ethics
