Abstract

The biopolitical debate on stem cell research and reproductive medicine has provoked heated controversy over biological issues and related anthropological questions. The social implications of the controversial issues are no less controversial: To what extent are developments in molecular genetics and reproductive medicine changing our normative orientations? What role do politics and law play in relation to science and economics? And how do biotechnological innovations shape ethical discourses? The contributions of the volume address such questions. They offer information and assessments from medical and scientific perspectives and contain normative and cultural studies reflections from pedagogy, philosophy and theology. The volume is the result of a multidisciplinary lecture series that took place in the summer semester 2002 at the University of Hamburg.

Abstract

Die Würde des Menschen ist unantastbar - dieses unbedingte Recht ist völker-, europa- und verfassungsrechtlich verbürgt. Dass die Würde des Menschen jedoch auch im säkularisierten sozialen Rechtsstaat letztendlich eine heilige Ordnung ist, kollektiv religiös geglaubt werden muss und sich nicht in einem rationalen Diskurs hinreichend wahrheitsfähig erweist, zeigt Frank Schulz-Nieswandt im Rekurs auf Böckenförde, Habermas, Joas und Agamben. Im Anschluss daran entfaltet er die Idee einer gottlosen Ontotheologie eines existenzialen personalistischen Humanismus, den er mit Verweis auf Paul Tillich und Romano Guardini zugleich gegen jeden Übergriff einer autoritären Theo-Dogmatik supranaturalistischer Art verteidigt.
