Harmonizing Bioethics is about
relationships of peoples and cultures, our civilizations and
living environments. Following the original concept of
bioethics by Fritz Jahr, we search for harmonizing
discourses in the process of industrialization and
globalization. Confucius ‚compassion‘ and Jesus ‚love your
neighbor‘ are the global backbones of our actual and future
deliberations. ‚Do not hurt, be compassionate, be
respectful, be responsible‘. Issues such as caring for the
poor, euthanasia, organ transplantation and physician-lay
collaboration and teamwork are discussed in transcultural
evaluation. A special aspect of urban bioethics and culture
discusses also the influence of artificial intelligence.
Building upon these pluriperspective grounds will direct us
and the world in future collaboration as a bridge in global
ways in integrating peoples and values advancing to a new
age for all.
