Fritz Jahr, a Protestant Pastor in Halle an der Saale, coined the original
term Bioethics already in 1927 and formulated in critical response to
Immanuel Kant’s Categorical Imperative a Bioethics Imperative for the
future of integrative bioethics: „Respect every living Being as an end in
itself and treat it, if possible, as such!“ Leading bioethicists from
America, Asia and Europe discuss Jahr’s visionary concept of an ethics of
„bios“, integrating the ethics of land, community, health, and culture in
light of global challenges in the 21. century. The book includes all 16
long forgotten articles on bioethics and ethics by Jahr from 1927 to 1947
in English translation.
