A Confucian Perspective on the Development of AI Diagnostic Technology
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Cheng’s article argues that AI diagnosis and its logic, which are based on Western medical thought and Western philosophy, obstruct the generation of meaning and construction of personhood for both doctors and patients. The article maintains that we should thus engage in introspection on AI in based on other traditions of thought, such as Confucianism. However the article does not provide a deeper interpretation of why Confucianism is particularly helpful in constructing personhood and realizing value in life in the context of medical practice. This article is a response to Cheng’s argument and suggests directions for refinement.
