Abstract
The paper outlines an alternative approach to bioethical
issues to replace the present dominant approach which tends to be too
abstract and ignores the concrete contexts of the bioethical issues faced
by the contemporary world. This new approach, called “the humanistic
narrative approach”, attempts to make the best of the insights of
Wittgenstein, his followers such as Cora Diamond and David Cockburn
etc., Feminists such as Hilde Lindemann Nelson and Eva Feder kittay,
and the Christian theologians Gilbert Meilaender and Jean Vanier. After
outlining a moral vision of human animals from the vantage point of
the humanistic narrative approach, the author discusses organ
transplantation from brain dead persons, prenatal testing, and selective
abortion, including a criticism of Peter Singer’s position on the last
issue and an explanation of Jean Vanier’s entirely different attitude
towards disability.
