Central to the doctor/patient relationship, the announcement of a diagnosis holds a special place. What does this moment reveal? Between intimacy, trust, and domination, this critical moment says a great deal about relations between caregivers and those they care for. Medical rhetoric, spoken with authority, sometimes seems to conceal the mysteries of the oracle: this indelible moment is part of the patient’s life story. How can we tell the difference between diagnosis and prediction, opinion and sentence, doctor and fortune-teller?
