Lisa Bellantoni argues that contemporary bioethics divides into two logically incommensurable positions: a cult of rights, which identifies the worth of human life with our autonomy, and a cult of life, which identifies human worth with the possession of a soul, and thereby, of human dignity.
LISA BELLANTONI is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Albright College, USA. Her research focuses on bioethics, neuroethics, and emerging technologies.
