Responsibility and the crisis of technological civilization: A Husserlian meditation on Hans Jonas [Book Review]
Human Studies 21 (4):329-345 (1998)
Starting from a reflection on the present stage of technological civilisation, a critical reading of Jonas's ethics of responsibility from a Husserlian point of view is presented. It is argued that Jonas's ethics fails to meet the challenge of the collective character of technological action, that his view of human history is problematic and that the metaphysical foundation of his ethics is uncritical and naive.
