Biopolitics as an Area of Interest of the Church
Languages of publication
‘Biopolitics’ is a complex discipline that comprises of various disciplines of science. Today it is discussed in the field of sociology, social, political and medical sciences as a separate notion. Its various concepts and interpretations have resulted in the last centuries in tragic phenomena with the human being seen as a subject of the dominant socio-political ideologies. The contemporary biopolitics seems to be firmly rooted in the mainstream of the postmodern thought. The biopolitics with its multiple varieties always has a certain philosophical anthropology as its foundation. The Catholic Church also has some reasons in using this notion. In many statements of the magisterium the biopolitics is not only just another interpretation of the “politics of life” but also an important antithesis against the contemporary reductionist concepts of the human being and rejection of the objective values.
