Abstract 摘要

In his fascinating and challenging essay, Professor Solomon provides a forceful account of the current “crisis in bioethics.” In the following comments, I seek clarification regarding the relationship between culture and bioethics by raising the following two questions: (1) What is the relationship between culture and the deep normative commitments that undergird conflicting normative theories? (2) Given the seemingly interminable nature of normative disagreements, what reasons are there to continue pursuing bioethics? The main concern arising from these two questions is that given the deep cultural divisions in contemporary society, as articulated by Solomon, the point of doing bioethics is no longer clear.
