  3. The Personal is Political. Ethics and Personalized Medicine.Vilhjálmur Arnason - 2012 - Ethical Perspectives 19 (1):103-122.
    It is argued that the ethical questions and challenges raised by the project of personalizing medicine are not sufficiently addressed without considering the possible effects thereof on our system of healthcare. I argue that the framing of ethical issues in light of the main principles of bioethics, such as autonomy, welfare and even justice, tends to be too narrow and the larger social implications thus tend to be neglected. Among the possible unintended consequences of the project to increase personal responsibility (...)

    From Species Ethics to Social Concerns: Habermas’s Critique of “Liberal Eugenics” Evaluated.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2014 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 35 (5):353-367.
    Three arguments of Habermas against “liberal eugenics”—the arguments from consent, responsibility, and instrumentalization—are critically evaluated and explicated in the light of his discourse ethics and social theory. It is argued that these arguments move partly at a too deep level and are in part too individualistic and psychological to sufficiently counter the liberal position that he sets out to criticize. This is also due to limitations that prevent discourse ethics from connecting effectively to the moral and political domains, e.g., through (...)

    Nonconfrontational Rationality or Critical Reasoning.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2011 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 20 (2):228-237.
    Rationality and the Genetic Challenge by Matti Häyry is a well-written and thoughtful book about important issues in the contemporary ethical discussion of genetics. The book is well structured around seven practical themes that the author takes to exemplify “the genetic challenge.” He also refers to them as “seven ways of making people better,” which the subtitle of the book already puts into question form: Making People Better? In the first chapter of the book, Häyry introduces these seven themes and (...)

    Gadamerian Dialogue in the Patient-Professional Interaction.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2000 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 3 (1):17-23.
    In his seminal work, Truth and Method, theGerman philosopher Hans-Georg Gadamer distinguishesbetween three types of what he calls the experience ofthe `Thou'. In this paper, Gadamer's analysis of thisexperience is explained in terms of his philosophicalhermeneutics and brought to bear upon thepatient-professional relationship. It is argued thatwhile Gadamer's analysis implies fruitful insights fora dialogical account of the patient-professionalinteraction, it harbours elements which are conduciveto paternalistic practice of medicine. The strongattribution of value to tradition and the respect forauthority emphasized in his (...)

    Sensible Discussion in Bioethics: Reflections on Interdisciplinary Research.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2005 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 14 (3):322-328.
    edited by Tuija Takala and Matti Häyry, welcomes contributions on the conceptual and theoretical dimensions of bioethics.The section is dedicated to the idea that words defined by bioethicists and others should not be allowed to imprison people's actual concerns, emotions, and thoughts. Papers that expose the many meanings of a concept, describe the different readings of a moral doctrine, or provide an alternative angle to seemingly self-evident issues are therefore particularly appreciated.The themes covered in the section so far include dignity, (...)

    Bioethical Concepts in Theory and Practice: An Exploratory Study of Prenatal Screening in Iceland. [REVIEW]Helga Gottfreðsdóttir & Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2011 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 14 (1):53-61.
    A hallmark of good antenatal care is to respect prospective parent’s choices and provide information in a way that encourages their autonomy and informed decision making. In this paper, we analyse the meaning of autonomous and informed decision making from the theoretical perspective and attempt to show how those concepts are described among prospective parents in early pregnancy and in the public media in a society where NT screening is almost a norm. We use interviews with Icelandic prospective parents in (...)

    Bioethics in Iceland.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 2010 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 19 (3):299-309.
    Recent bioethics discussion and research in Iceland has been greatly affected by the fact that one of the world’s largest genetics research companies is based there and has been in the forefront of creating a population database resource for its research projects. Consequently, a large part of this article is centered around the bioethical discussion engendered by these projects, but other recent bioethical developments related to issues at the beginning and the end of life will also be discussed.

  12. Towards Authentic Conversations. Authenticity in the Patient-Professional Relationship.Vilhjálmur Árnason - 1994 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 15 (3).
    The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the significance of the existential notion of authenticity for medical ethics. This is done by analyzing authenticity and examining its implications for the patient-professional relationship and for ethical decision-making in medical situations. It is argued that while authenticity implies important demand for individual responsibility, which has therapeutic significance, it perpetuates ideas which are antithetical both to authentic interaction between patients and professionals and to fruitful deliberation of moral dilemmas. In order to counteract (...)

    Geneticization and Bioethics: Advancing Debate and Research. [REVIEW]Vilhjálmur Árnason & Stefán Hjörleifsson - 2007 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 10 (4):417-431.
    In the present paper, we focus on the role that the concept of geneticization has played in the discussion about health care, bioethics and society. The concept is discussed and examples from the evolving discourse about geneticization are critically analyzed. The relationship between geneticization, medicalization and biomedicalization is described, emphasizing how debates about the latter concepts can inspire future research on geneticization. It is shown how recurrent themes from the media coverage of genetics portray typical traits of geneticization and thus (...)

  25. The Context of Morality and the Question of Ethics: From Naive Existentialism to Suspicious Hermeneutics.Vilhjalmur Arnason - 1982 - Dissertation, Purdue University
    This study attempts to situate ethical discourse within descriptions of a moral context which do justice both to concrete individual moral experiences and to the socio-historical framework within which they are lived. In light of these descriptions it is argued that an adequate theory of morality must focus on the essential continuity between the individual moral life and the communal practices and institutions which constitute our ethical substance. ;In Chapter One it is shown how the existentialist liberation of the moral (...)
