Abstract

¿Dónde y cuándo nació la bioética? Tradicionalmente se ha atribuido la creación del neologismo «bioética» a Potter, en 1970, y su desarrollo a los jesuitas de la Universidad de Georgetown. Sin embargo, la cuestión es mucho más compleja y supera ampliamente el contexto norteamericano, no solo porque se descubrió que el alemán Fritz Jahr ya había acuñado el término en los años veinte, sino porque la ética clínica tiene siglos de historia, y en todas las culturas y religiones se ha reflexionado sobre los problemas referentes a la salud, la vida y su ocaso. Al factor meramente histórico hemos de añadir el ideológico. «Bioética» fue el término que emplearon algunos teólogos para adoctrinar al personal sanitario conforme al dogma católico en asuntos como la reproducción y la eutanasia. Este intento de monopolizar materias tan sensibles provocó como reacción defensiva la incorporación a la disciplina de corrientes de pensamiento feministas, laicistas y multiculturales. Por último, la aceleración de la biotecnología y el temor a las consecuencias de la manipulación del genoma de los seres vivos terminaron de consolidar la bioética como campo de conocimiento plural y multidisciplinar.

Abstract

The book Reflections on Bioethics is an effort that brings together works grouped into five sections: ""Bioethics and Health"", ""Bioethics and Education"", ""Bioethics and Technology"", ""Bioethics in the Use of Experimental Animals"",and ""Selected Topics of Bioethics"". In each of these sections, the fundamental concepts of bioethics and their relationship with each of these branches of knowledge are covered. The purpose is to give the reader a specific document of topics, it is not intended to be a treaty because the study of any of the five sections is very broad. However, this is an effort that manages to combine in interdisciplinary subjects that are fundamental for professionals of all fields of knowledge.

Abstract

With the conclusion of the Decade of the Brain and Decade of the Mind, neuroscience has advanced well beyond single neuron functions, and begun to investigate global properties that emerge from central nervous system operation. Core ethical issues for neural intervention, in consequence, now touch on concerns over how the individual as a whole may be affected. Central to these concerns is the fundamental value of the human being, which lends normative weight to questions, interventions, and practices influencing him or her. Yet, despite wide recognition of the crucial relevance of human value, the derivation of metaethical principles that underwrite this value is by no means uniformly agreed to. Why and how the human being is normatively privileged, accordingly, emerge as core questions that frame issues of ethical praxis. This book tackles this dissonance, and exposes the philosophical foundations that are rooting contemporary divisions in ethical approaches to intervention in the nervous system.

Abstract

This book reflects on the many contributions made in and to European bioethics to date, in various locations, and from various disciplinary perspectives. In so doing, the book advances understanding of the academic and social status of European bioethics as it is being supported and practiced by various disciplines such as philosophy, law, medicine, and the social sciences, applied to a wide range of areas. The European focus offers a valuable counter-balance to an often prominent US understanding of bioethics. The volume is split into four parts. The first contains reflection on bioethics in the past, present and future, and also considers how comparison between countries and disciplines can enrich bioethical discourse. The second looks at bioethics in particular locations and contexts, including: policy, boardrooms and courtrooms; studios and virtual rooms; and society, while the third part explores the translation of theories and concepts of bioethics into the clinical setting. The fourth and final section focuses on academic expressions of bioethics, as it is theorised in various disciplines and also as it is taught, whether in classrooms or at the patient’s bedside. The book features unique contributions from a range of experts including: Alastair V Campbell; Ruth Chadwick; Angus Dawson; Raymond G. De Vries; Suzanne Ost; Renzo Pegoraro; Rouven Porz; Paul Schotsmans;Jochen Vollmann; Guy Widdershoven and Hub Zwart.
