The Future of Bioethics

Edward J. Bergman

Oxford University Press

In this essay, the authors respond to the thoughtful commentaries on the piece, “The Future of Clinical Ethics Education: Value Pluralism, Communication and Mediation.” The authors explore issues emanating from comparative differences between United States and Japanese legal doctrines, cultural values and clinical practices. The authors also respond to concerns with regard to neutrality in situations in which concerned parties explicitly seek substantive advice on ethical issues. Next, the authors discuss the concept of “mediation as pure procedure.” Finally, the authors look at how mediation must function as a process inside the strictures of the legal system of the jurisdiction in which clinical ethics consultation takes place, a point on which we whole-heartedly agree.

Keywords:   Clinical Ethics, Ethics Committees, Mediation, Facilitation, Cross-cultural bioethics, Values pluralism
