Feminism, Disability, and Brain Death
: Alternative Voices from Japanese Bioethics
Journal of Philosophy of Life Vol.5,
No.1 (July 2015):19-41
Japanese bioethics has created a variety of important ideas that have not yet been reflected on mainstream bioethics discourses in the English-speaking world, which include “the swaying of the confused self” in the field of feminism, “inner eugenic thought” concerning disability, and “human relationship-oriented approaches to brain death.” In this paper, I will examine them more closely, and consider what bioethics in Japan can contribute to the development of an international discussion on philosophy of life.
