Most important philosopher in bioethics


I am now reading Hans Jonas's paper, "The Burden and Blessing of Mortality" (Hastings Center Report, 1992). Hans Jonas is not only famous for his research on the philosophy of Gnosis, but for his books on environmental ethics and bioethics. I think he is the most important philosopher in the field of bioethics so far. He died in 1993, hence, this paper is considered to be one of the most important in the later days of his life.

I will write about this paper in the next post. Please give me time to think.
