Bioethics in the Third Millennium: Some Critical Anticipations
Engelhardt, H. Tristram
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1999 Sep; 9(3): 225-243.
Its promises to the contrary notwithstanding, bioethics is plural. There is a diversity of content-full moral undertandings of the good and the right. Moreover, there is no secular means in principle to set this diversity aside without begging the question. This moral diversity exists both as a sociological condition and as a moral epistemological constraint. Without succumbing to a metaphysical scepticism or moral relativism, the bioethics of the future, if it is to be honest, should learn how to live with robust moral diversity.
