Relational approaches: vulnerability and autonomy in bioethics.

Janet Delgado Rodríguez
Janet Delgado Rodríguez, of the Doctorate and Postgraduate School of the University of La Laguna, for: "Relational approaches: vulnerability and autonomy in bioethics".
 
The main purpose of this study is to analyze and redefine the conceptual framework that has been used to date to develop the notion of vulnerability within the sphere of bioethics. It takes as its starting point the need to develop new ethical focuses and perspectives that raise our awareness of vulnerability, and the possible objective and subjective harm caused by structural inequalities and violence, in an approach that incorporates the ethics of ‘alterity' or otherness.
