Theorie und Praxis der Euthanasie (German Edition) by Volker Vahl

By Volker Vahl

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Ethik, word: 1,0, Helmut-Schmidt-Universität - Universität der Bundeswehr Hamburg (Ethik), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das Leben selbst ist wohl der älteste und geheimnisvollste Gegenstand der Geschichte. Selbst immer mehr anhäufende Erkenntnisse in den Naturwissenschaften können das Geheimnis von Leben und Tod nicht lüften. Die medizinische Forschung hat zwar alte Lebensbedrohungen ungefährlich gemacht, kann das Leben um einige Tage und Monate verlängern, das Sterben verkürzen und verzögern, aber das Sterben nicht völlig verhindern. Leben und Tod sind eine unzertrennbare Symbiose. Der Tod ist in das Leben mit einprogrammiert. Bis heute ist der Mensch nicht Herr über den Tod. Er hat nur die Fähigkeit das Leben zu beenden, sich selbst und andere zu töten. Dies konnte der Mensch im Laufe der Geschichte mehrfach unter Beweis stellen, ob im Krieg, als Strafe oder aus Heimtücke.
Daraus ergibt sich folgende ethische Frage: Darf guy das Leben eines anderen Menschen verkürzen?

By Laurence Hansen-Løve

los angeles technology du bien et du mal n'a jamais existé, et si Platon s'en désolait, nous avons cessé, nous, les Modernes, de nous en offusquer.

Est-il appropriate d'abandonner à leur style les familles de migrants fuyant l. a. guerre ? Mon will pay, l. a. France, doit-il intervenir militairement contre tel ou tel État dit « terroriste » ? etc.Face à de telles interrogations, nous ne pouvons nous contenter de suspendre notre jugement sous couvert de relativisme (« À chacun sa perception du bien et du mal »).Prenant appui sur les réflexions de grands philosophes et théologiens face au défi du mal, tout en interrogeant los angeles montée de nouvelles formes de violences au xxie siècle, Laurence Hansen-Løve pose los angeles query : le bien et le mal sont-ils vraiment des notions obsolètes ? Une fois récusée los angeles fausse évidence d'une symétrie entre le bien et le mal, il est attainable de prendre acte de l. a. préséance du mal sur le bien. Dès lors, los angeles certitude du mal, posée comme un fait, cesse de contredire l'incertitude du bien, à laquelle il apparaît sage de se résoudre.

DROIT ET VALEUR HUMAINE,L'autre dans la philosophie du by Stamatios Tzitzis

By Stamatios Tzitzis

Dans ce livre, composé de deux volets, mon purpose est de confronter l'humanisme ancien à l'humanisme moderne.

En competition avec les modernes, les Anciens s'efforcent d'écouter los angeles nature. Respecter l'harmonie naturelle devient los angeles règle d'or de l'homme ancien qui s'évertue à l'appliquer dans toutes les manifestations de sa vie individuelle et sociale. L'humanisme ancien est fondé sur l'altérité dissemblable. Pour cet humanisme, l'autre est celui qui ne possède pas los angeles tradition du juste (athémistos), le barbare, donc celui qui, au lieu de pratiquer l. a. vertu, s'applique à l'exercice de los angeles violence. Cette tradition, comprenant à los angeles fois une size éthique et juridique, transforme une vie d'anarchie et de laideur, symptômes de l'injustice, en une vie d'équilibre et de beauté piliers de los angeles justice et du droit. Contrairement à l'humanisme d'aujourd'hui fondé sur los angeles ressemblance des visages et sur l'égalité des existences, l'humanisme hellénique est fondé sur l. a. dissemblance. Dans l'humanisme moderne et postmoderne, toutes les vies humaines possèdent los angeles même valeur ontologique, c'est-à-dire une valeur inhérente à l'homme en tant qu'homme.
