  2. A Question of Justice: Assessing Nurse Migration From a Philosophical Perspective.Lukas Kaelin - 2011 - Developing World Bioethics 11 (1):30-39.
    The intensified nurse migration leads to severe problems for the health care systems in many developing countries. Using the Philippines as an example, this paper will address the question of global nurse migration from a philosophical perspective. John Rawls' liberal and Michael Walzer's communitarian theory of justice will be examined in view of the ethical problem of nurse migration. In line with Rawls' A Theory of Justice, nurse migration undermines the ability of the people in developing countries to make use (...)

    Adorno, Obama, and Empire: Reflections on the U.S. Presidential Election and the Next President.Lukas Kaelin - 2008 - Kritike 2 (2):31-45.
    The paper attempts to philosophically assess the recent U.S. presidential race and to look at some aspects of the underlying beliefs of Barack Obama that aided him in his campaign. The philosophical framework used in order to interpret the political events are mainly from the Critical Theory of Theodor W. Adorno and the neo-Marxist approach of Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri. Further observations will concentrate on the logic and attraction of the electoral process and the dialectical logic of Sarah Palin’s (...)

  6. Ambiguity of Hope: An Analysis of its Status in Politics.Lukas Kaelin - 2012 - Philosophia 40 (1).
    Ambiguity is inherent in the concept of hope especially when used in the field of politics. While a functionalist view of politics can only understand hope in terms of manipulation, an Aristotelian view of politics may require hope for its operation. The ambiguity of hope, then, is traced to ancient Greek and Roman thought, in Hesiod and Ovid. This ambiguity can also be found in 20th century German philosophy. Ernst Bloch is just as enthusiastic about hope as Theodor W. Adorno (...)

  7. Bioethics: A View on the Contemporary Discussion in Germany Compared to Asia.Lukas Kaelin - 2006 - Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 16 (4):125-130.
    What is understood by the term “bioethics” varieswidely. Whereas in Germany the focus of the discussioncentres on biotechnological issues like PreimplantationGenetic Diagnosis , research on human stem cellsand cloning, in Asia the concept is understood morebroadly including among others environmental ethics,animal rights and medical ethics. This article tries to setout the discussion going on in Germany on two ratherdifferent levels: On the one hand, it is a legal discussionon whether research on human stem cell should beallowed and whether to put (...)

  9. Contextualizing Bioethics.Lukas Kaelin - 2009 - Unesco Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights and Observations About Filipino Bioethics. Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 19 (2):42-47.
    This paper examines the question of the universality of bioethical norms by contrasting the UNESCO Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights with aspects of Filipino bioethics. Starting with an exploration of the vagueness of the concept and scope of bioethics, this paper will in turn discuss the UDBHR and distinguish it from key notions in Filipino bioethics. The outlook of Filipino bioethics that I have observed differs significantly from the UDBHR emphasis on the principles autonomy and justice. This discrepancy leads (...)

    Ethical statements and position papers on genome editing often refer to “the public” that should get involved, and a public discussion that should take place. It is not self-evident what this reference to the public means and why such a public engagement should take place. This chapter explores the concept of the public as discussed in key position papers on genome editing and puts it into relationship with the notion of the public in political theory. The fuzzy notion of the (...)

  12. Global Bioethics Quo Vadis? Escaping the Alternatives Between Moral Imperialism and Moral Relativism.Lukas Kaelin - 2012 - Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 22 (3):99-101.
    The debate about the direction, coherence and possible imperialism of universal norms in global bioethics has been going on for years. Proponents of universal norms have fiercely stated their cases focusing on human rights, autonomy and/or further principles in bioethics. Equally forceful has been the opposition to such universal principles arguing mainly on grounds of cultural diversity. The alternative is commonly presented as one between moral relativism and moral imperialism; solutions that are equally unattractive. This paper suggests a way forward (...)

  13. Organ Donation as a Question of Justice: The UN/EU Report on Organ Trafficking in the Context of the Philippines.Lukas Kaelin - 2010 - Eubios Journal of Asian and International Bioethics 20 (5):150-154.
    A recent joint study by the Council of Europe and the United Nations focused on the criminality surrounding organ donations. Published in October 2009, it points out the various violations of the international prohibition on the trafficking of organs. This paper will first analyze this study and then contextualize it in the current discourse about organ donation in the Philippines. Finally, the issue of organ donation will be put in the wider discourse of justice in organ transplantation.Organ donation and trafficking (...)

  14. Towards a Redefinition of the Public Sphere.Lukas Kaelin - 2018 - Proceedings of the XXIII World Congress of Philosophy 69:205-209.
    The public sphere plays a crucial role in the functioning of liberal democracy. As a sphere conceived ideally independent of state control and economic influence, it serves as the sounding board of social and political concerns, where communications take place, ideas are exchanged, and arguments are put forward. The liberal notion of the public sphere relies on values such as inclusivity, transparency, equality, and rationality. This paper explores the limits of the liberal notion of the public sphere by looking into (...)
