Sample text

It is easy to see that this position elides a problem. The assertion that no way of living can be shown to be better or worse than any other fails to consider that there are tensions between ways of living: consider the life of the slave master versus the life of the enslaved. If every way of living is good to its practitioner, can it be equally good to all, including its victims? In what follows, I will address this question with regard to the intersection of culture and bioethics. Using the Herder–Tylor sense of culture as my point of departure, I raise the question whether or not, in spite of the multiplicity of cultures, there cannot be a universal foundation for bioethics.

How to accommodate the multifarious and cross-cutting differences between women (and between social groups in general) is a major issue in contemporary feminist thinking. Recognition of difference complicates feminist social analysis and feminist attempts to eliminate women’s oppression, but it also promotes more sophisticated analysis and political theorizing. In addressing multiplicities of difference, and the impact of diverse cultural frameworks on an overall understanding of issues of justice and oppression, feminism has developed conceptual and methodological tools of use to bioethicists in the multicultural and global context of contemporary issues (Tong 2001).

The appeal to the principle of paternalism would reject the wishes or desires of the patient on account of what it considers the best interest of the patient. So in our case, the paternalist, unconvinced about the rationality of the patient’s decision to refuse life-sustaining treatment, would reject her wishes as not being in her best interests. The important point here is that the reason or justification has to do with the patient’s best interest, which is determined to be at variance with the patient’s current wishes and desires.
