Abstract

The author considers ethical obligations in relation to all living beings. As a result, he formulates the guiding principle of our actions - a bioethical imperative «Respect each living being as an end in itself and, if possible,  treat it, as yourself». Based on this principle, you can pedagogically influence morality with the help of various scientific disciplines.

Author Biography

Fritz Jar

Protestant pastor in the city of Halle, proposed a term and developed the concept of bioethics in 1927, long before the emergence of bioethics in the modern sense in the 1970s in the United States and its spread throughout the world. Pastor Fritz Jahr, who had no immediate influence during his times, built a strong first Protestant foundation for contemporary theological and ethical concepts in medical ethics, bioethics, and environmental ethics.
