(p.610) 17.2 Commentary
The Future of Bioethics

Ilhak Lee

Oxford University Press

Traditionally, caring for the elderly was considered the responsibility of the younger generation, especially the offspring of elderly individuals. Filial loyalty, or? (xiao), was considered to form the philosophical base for this responsibility. Recently, however, the perception of this responsibility has changed among many Koreans. Here, the author examines this concept and its implications for healthcare policy.

Keywords:   Filial loyalty, end-of-life care, Korea, healthcare policy
