Abstract: The paper analyzes the concept of “medical error” through the prism of philosophical anthropology and law, revealing the essential and specific features of the concept and its place in the medical-legal discourse. The theoretical basis of work is the system approach in combination with methods of general scientific knowledge and special methods (categorical, formal-logical), methods of analysis, comparison; includes the means of discursive analytics and general principles of historical and philosophical science. The authors carried out a substantive analysis of the concept of “medical error” through the prism of philosophical anthropology, which is based on the philosophical understanding of human life and health as the highest value and public good. The analysis of “medical error” is carried out in the direction of a general understanding of the phenomenon of “errors” as an anthropological phenomenon to its manifestation in the practical field of activity of a medical worker. The subjective and objective components of the concept “medical error” are analyzed, points are defined, which allow overcoming the two-sidedness of the concept “medical error”. The authors have shown that “medical error” is an integral part of the practical-substantive activity of medical work as a component of such anthropological phenomenon as “error”, which in turn is the result of the formation of a “smart person”, an integral part of human nature. The article proves that the term “medical error” has the most adequate reflection in the medical discourse. “Medical error” does not contain any signs of a crime, that is, together with the necessary and sufficient objective and subjective attributes; there are no grounds for legal liability. But since the process and the result of a “medical error” has negative consequences for both the patient and the health of the patient, the problem of minimizing the “medical error” should be prioritized and relevant.
