Brief Remarks on Engelhardt’s After God

Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 43 (6):710-723 (2018)

>Engelhardt’s After God gives a comprehensive perspective on the deepest and hardest issues in both moral philosophy and bioethics of our time. Although the book is an intelligent critique of contemporary moral philosophy in favor of a kind of traditionalism rooted in the perspective of the Orthodox Church, containing numerous forceful arguments, I ultimately disagree with Engelhardt on several main points stemming from his pessimistic view of our current culture and society. I have neither the pretense to open new perspectives, nor to put forward new arguments, and I am aware that I might be wrong. I simply want to present a different position on the quest for meaning.
