Bioethics - Monday, September 13, 2010 Three types of bioethical questions 1. What should the state allow? What should the state provide? What does the state owe the citizens if it is to be just? What time of political arrangement/ rules/ policies should we have? 2. How should health care professionals behave? 3. What should each of us make of the issue at hand? How do I live well, when I am a human being like this? What is bioethics? The exploration of the moral questions that arise given our biological nature? Moral Questions: How should we behave? - NOT a question about self-interest - NOT a question about how we do behave - Instead, an appeal to values right/wrong virtuous/vicious obliged/ forbidden - open up the case so that you do not conform to your ideals Different Kinds of Values: - religious values blessed, divine, sacred, pious - non-religious values human well-being, human integrity, rationality Type 3 questions about individual belief (see above): the bioethics of everyday life
