ALARCON-NIVIA, Miguel Ángel. Newton's and Laplace's determinism in the positive law of colombian legislation vs. Heinsenberg's uncertainty in medical practice. Rev Colomb Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2015, vol.66, n.2, pp.116-123. ISSN 0034-7434.

Objective: To reflect on Colombian legislation regulating medical practice, increasingly permeated by the positivism of Lombroso, Ferri and Garofalo, followers of Newton's and La Place's deterministic think ing according to which every thing is predictable. Thesis: Among human sciences, some of the highest odds of producing random benefits or outcomes are found in medicine. Conclusions: Regulations must be imbued with the wisdom inherent to them in order to avoid placing medical practitioners under siege.

Keywords : Quantum theory; uncertainty; medical legislation.
