We will challenge both the general anti-theoretical doubt about the relevance of generalised moral reasoning and the influential view that moral theory can provide an a priori, fixed and complete framework that just needs to be applied to concrete moral problems. Instead we will scrutinise approaches that strive for developing a method of moral decision making that is both context-sensitive and sufficiently abstract to allow for concrete judgements from a generalised point of view. We will read and discuss current texts about pragmatic ethics, ethics of care and particularism, in order to see how they relate to concrete problems within the field of bioethics.Mehr...
