The ethics of valuing bios in all its forms and
shapes has been an essential part of great and successful
cultures from the millennia-old Vedic tradition of
`tattvamasi‘ – this is also you: this plant, this animal,
this microbe, this ecosystem – to the simple hands-on call
of Jesus `love your neighbor‘. But as a term bioethics has
only been coined 90 years ago by Fritz Jahr, an educator and
pastor in Halle in his Bioethical Imperative `Respect every
Living Being as an end in itself and treat it, if possible,
as such‘.
