Zur Solidarität des Mitleidens: Argumente für die sozialethische Relevanz eines ›untätigen‹ Gefühls

von: Rebekka A. Klein

This article asks for criteria to evaluate the moral value of the emotion ›Mitleid‹ (compassion, pity). It understands this emotion as a culturally formed affect which reinforces solidarity and social bonding among humans. In the Christian tradition, the moral value of ›Mitleid‹ is often exemplified by its practical consequences, its leading to action. In contrast, current approaches in sociology and social theory emphasize the passive and distant attitude inherent to ›Mitleid‹. Thus, the article asks for ethical criteria to determine the moral value of this emotion which apply when it is not leading to action. Therefore, it refers to the debate on moral sensitivity and the recognition among equals.

Schuld an Krankheit?

Herausforderungen der prädiktiven Medizin in theologisch-ethischer Reflexion
von: Katharina Klöcker

The author reflects critically on the relationship between illness and guilt in the context of predictive medicine. Analysing the key paradigms prevention and the role of risk, she makes it clear that the responsibility of the ‘healthy sick person’ needs to go beyond the use of the established means of prevention. Taking into account what Descartes writes about provisional moral, she presents a fresh approach to dealing with ethical dilemmas surrounding predictive medicine. In particular, she recommends the category of vulnerability as a corrective to alternative dealings with individual medicine.

Eine neue Ära? Ethische Fragen zur Genomchirurgie

von: Wolfgang Huber

The ethical questions related to the new method of genome editing (CRISPR-Cas9) refer to »green« as well as »red« genetic engineering. As far as humans are concerned the difference between genetic interventions in somatic cells and in the germline has to be taken into account. The article proposes to apply the distinction between the right and the good to the evaluation of the new possibilities and uses the four principles of medical ethics for a critical evaluation. The critical analysis shows that a clear distinction between the use of such technologies for therapy or for enhancement is necessary. In the perspective of an ethics of responsibility the consequences of genome editing for the individual as well as for humankind have to be taken seriously. The article argues that additional research should be undertaken regarding the possible therapeutic use of genome editing in somatic cells. Interventions into the human germline are not acceptable as long as the presented moral and ethical arguments against it are valid.

Gesinnungs- und Verantwortungsethik in der Flüchtlingspolitik

von: Ulrich H.J. Körtner

While ethics of responsibility question the consequences of acts, ethics of conviction measure the quality of deeds primarily by reference to moral principles as well as intentions. The public debate on the European refugee crisis frequently bears witness to a clash of these two takes on ethics. However, an open, constitutional democracy cannot exist without limits and boundaries if it wants to remain able to act and to protect its inhabitants as well as migrants and refugees. The lack of conclusive refugee and migration politics highlights a homemade crisis of politics which can be labelled as organised irresponsibility. An ethics of responsibility must enable realistic and workable politics which assume responsibility in concrete situations. So far, churches as agents of civil society have mainly used conviction-ethical arguments loosely based around the biblical principles of Christian charity and welcoming strangers, as well as the option for the poor, but have also spoken out in favour of fair distribution which is a responsibility-ethical argument. A closer look reveals that current refugee politics do not benefit the weakest. These ethical dilemmata must be faced by asking what mode of living together and what future we ultimately want, which is an eschatological and thus highly theological question.
