Bioetica e retorica

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Bioethics and rhetoric

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


[Autom. eng. transl.] The rhetorical dimension remains an unavoidable component of the human being and transversely present in the different spheres of human activity: from the management of hospitals to ecology, to cinema. Therefore also bioethics is called to confront itself with "Progressive Rhetoric": a rhetoric, that is, persuasive and proactive, capable of involving, as well as convincing, the interlocutor. For this reason, we believe that Bioethics should not limit its role to a passive evaluation of what happens every day, but that it is called to say proactively "how the world desires" and how it intends to achieve that desire.
