Filozofija I Društvo 24 (2):255-263 (2013)

The aim of this work is twofold. On the one hand, the intention is to provide analysis of the issue of euthanasia. On the other hand, this approach necessarily leads to a discussion toward the provision of an adequate definition of euthanasia. Therefore the article, first of all, refers to the multi?layered aspect of the term euthanasia. To avoid ambiguity and other uncer?tainties while providing the definition of euthanasia, the authors carefully perform a conceptual analysis. This leads to the establishment of a clear distinction between actions which, due to their motives or their method of execution, cast a shadow on the meaning of this medical procedure. [Projekat Ministarstva nauke Republike Srbije, br. 179041: Dinamicki sistemi u prirodi i drustvu: filozofski i empirijski aspekti] Cilj ovog rada je dvojak. S jedne strane, namera je da se pruzi analiza problema eutanazije. S druge strane, ovakav pristup na nuzan nacin diskusiju vodi u pravcu pruzanja adekvatne definicije eutanazije. Stoga se u tekstu, pre svega, ukazuje na viseslojnost termina eutanazija i vrsi se pojmovna analiza kako bi se, pri pruzanju definicije eutanazije izbegla dvoznacnost i druge nejasnoce. Time se dolazi do uspostavljanja jasne razlike izmedju svih onih postupaka koji, bilo zbog motiva iz kojih se vrse, ili zbog nacina na koji se vrse, bacaju senku na znacenje ovog medicinskog postupka.
