A theory of Clinical Bioethics based on the integration of the moral logic of health care practice ("internal morality") and the larger social concerns and processes ("external morality") Clinical Bioethics. A Search for the Foundations compares major theoretical models in the foundation of clinical bioethics and explains medicine as a normative practice. The goals of medicine are discussed with particular reference to the subjectivisation of health and the rationalisation of health care institutions. This volume provides a consistent reconstruction of bioethical judgment both at the level of epistemological statute and institutional context, i.e. clinical ethics committees and clinical ethics consultation.

The book deeply analyses the bilateral relations between Switzerland and the European Union and their effect on the former's sovereignty in the context of Europeanisation. This touches on philosophical debates on the complexity of sovereignty. What sovereignty is at stake when talking about Swiss-EU relations? This issue not only faces the elusiveness of sovereignty as a concept, but also the proliferation of hypocrisy on its presence within states. The book encounters the deconstructionist hypothesis stating that there is nothing to worry about but the belief there is something to worry about. Derrida’s deconstruction of sovereignty allows indeed one to grasp the fictional essence of sovereignty based on the metaphysics of presence. The presence of self-positing sovereign ipseity is fictional since absent in the present, but spectrally present in the belief of its presence to come. Sovereignty is a matter of credibility, or the credible promise of a normative statement to come. Hence, the book challenges the realist/neorealist argument stating that states are credibly sovereign until proven otherwise and explains that the debate on state sovereignty calls for the unveiling of this hypocritical epistemology cunningly disguised as an objective presence. Swiss-EU relations thus become the cornerstone to not only theorise but also test sovereignty and deconstruct the two ontological and epistemological sides of the same coin, or the modern hypocrisy of sovereignty. This deconstruction constitutes the very problématique of any attempt to understand whether and how a state can be sovereign and solve the problem as to how to neutralise the différance and identify the difference between credible and incredible claims of sovereignty. This problématique connects the theory and practice of sovereignty innovatively, providing positivist evidence on the arguable credibility of the Swiss claim of sovereignty and confirming the presence of a theological dimension within politics.

CHRISTOPH REHMANN-SUTTER, MARCUS DÜWELL, DIETMAR MIETH When we placed “finitude”, “limits of human existence” as a motto over a round of discussion on biomedicine and bioethics (which led to this collection of essays) we did not know how far this would lead us into methodological quandaries. However, we felt intuitively that an interdisciplinary approach including social and cultural sciences would have an advantage over a solely disciplinary (philosophical or theological) analysis. Bioethics, if it is to have adequate discriminatory power, should include sensitivity to the cultural contexts of biomedicine, and also to the cultural contexts of bioethics itself. Context awareness, of course, is not foreign to philosophical or theological bioethics, for the simple reason that the issues tackled in the debates (as in other fields of ethics) could not be adequately understood outside their contexts. Moral issues are always accompanied by contexts. When we try to unpack them – which is necessary to make them accessible to ethical discussion – we are regularly confronted with the fact that in removing too much of the context we do not clarify an issue, but make it less comprehensible. The context – at least some essential parts of it – is intrinsic to the issue. Unpacking in ethics is therefore a different procedure. It does not mean peeling the context off, but rather identifying which contextual elements are essential for an understanding of the key moral aspects of the issue, and explaining how they establish its particular character.

Il 21 settembre 1962 si compirono cento anni dalla morte del P. Luigi Taparelli d'Azeglio della Compagnia di Gesu. Ricopriva allora la carica di Superiore e Direttore della Civilta Cattolica, il periodico dei gesuiti italiani al quale aveva dedicato gli ultimi dodici anni della sua vita, dopo averlo tenuto a battesimo nel 1850. Chiudeva gli occhi nel Collegio romano, centro di studi fondato da S. Ignazio di Loyola ed illustrato in tre secoli da uomini insigni nelle scienze sacre ed umane e del quale egli stesso era stato il primo Rettore, quando Leone XII, nel 1824, lo aveva restituito alla Compagnia di Gesu. Questa coincidenza di luogo era l'espressione di una continuita spirituale e di pensiero unificatore che aveva caratterizzato tutta la sua vita. Rettore del Collegio romano, P. Taparelli non era stato soltanto coscienzioso dirigente di un Istituto che raccoglieva per gli studi umanistici il fiore della gioventu romana, e per le scienze sacre gli alunni dei Seminari di tutto il mondo, ma soprattutto un pioniere e capo di un movimento che doveva imprimere un indirizzo al pensiero cattolico. Eredi e partecipi delle ricchezze intellettuali e morali di questa figura di uomo di scienza e di fede, la Pontificia Universita Gregoriana e la Civilta Cattolica hanno voluto commemorare degnamente il compiersi dei cento anni dalla sua morte.
