Bioetyka laicka i „chrześcijańska” a kryzys racjonalności moralnej
Lay and „Christian” Bioethics and the Crisis of Moral Rationality
Languages of publication
This article sets out Hugo Tristram Engelhardt’s projects of secular and “Christian” bioethics. In the first one, a kind of pragmatic moral rationality is deployed; whereas the second one is characterised by the religious and communitarian moral rationality. In the article, it is argued that this distinction neglects a kind of moral rationality which stems from the notions of the person and its unique dignity which are available to grasp despite different cultural differences. What makes them so trans-cultural is also a fact that they are enshrined in the all-important international documents, including bioethical ones.
