PERSONALISTIC STANDARD OF BIOETHICS
Languages of publication
A fundamental assumption of a personalistic concept of bioethics is respecting a person as a goal of an action, not a mean to achieve it. This concept comes down to a truth that value and dignity of a person is the basis of every ethical obligations towards a human being. Such understanding of dignity leads to concrete obligations, such as respecting the autonomy of human existence and the value of life, an obligation to act ‘within the i eld of responsibility’, respecting the good of concrete persons and human society. Such a personalistic norm is particularly meaningful for all actions relating to man’s health and life. The problem signalled in the title of the article has been discussed with particular regard to two issues 1) a personalistic norm as an axiologicalexistential determiner of bioethics, 2) personalistic demands/requirements concerning human health and life.
