Persona y Bioética

Print version ISSN 0123-3122


LEON-CORREA, Francisco Javier. ÉTICA DEL CUIDADO FEMINISTA Y BIOÉTICA PERSONALISTA. pers.bioét. [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.1, pp.53-61. ISSN 0123-3122.

We analyze the criticism launched by several representatives of feminist ethics against bioethics, its proposal for an ethics of care and what personalism proposes with respect to woman and bioethics. The objective is to develop a list of topics on which dialogue between the two can and should acquire greater depth. Above and beyond the difference in perspective in "masculine" and "feminine" individualist or utilitarian views of ethics, dialogue can be pursued and it is possible to look for complementarities through the paths opened up by several contemporary philosophers, both men and women, towards ethics that are rational, but focused more on the personal and human aspect.

Keywords : Bioethics; feminism; personal ambition.
