The Ideal of the Family and Bioethics
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
The family financial account provides a type of supplement to economic checks in developing societies, which further facilitates the reform of healthcare. The ontological/ metaphysical family mode faces a challenge as the basis of the family financial account. The author focuses on the cooperation between humanitarian dedication and responsibilities, which are the solution to the family bioethics issue.
In contrast to this new form of family mode, the libertarian/ liberal account fits the postmodern culture better, with more emphasis on individual freedom, feminism, and equality of medical rights. At the same time, however, it lacks an understanding of the solidarity and fraternity between generations. Hence, it is important to use “overlapping consensus” theory to mediate and balance the two types of family financial account. Moreover, the author uses the comparison and competition between the two accounts toaddress the differences between right and wrong, good and bad. He also points out the means to revise and improve in the process of practice.
Although this article does not take into account the problems in actual execution, his ideas about the future prospects for human health protection remain optimistic.
