Autonomy, Responsibility, and Health Care

Critical Reflections

Bogdan Olaru, Editor

We come across an era of strong and even more unusual individual claims, while the solution on to often conflicting demands becomes increasingly elusive and parochial. One of the most intriguing philosophical questions is how to link human responsibility to those consequences of action which no one can fully foresee but, nevertheless, which no one can aff ord to neglect. Many biotechnological challenges are of this nature. This book is meant to give some insights in the mutual justification on which ought to regulate the space between autonomy and responsibility by taking up a stance on some dilemmatic issues in the medical field.
