Abstract

This article presents a bioethical perspective of ontologically-based personalism.

The aim of this model applied to bioethics is to provide a suitable framework for moral issues that arise from biomedical applications to human beings.

Firstly, an explanation is offered on how the ethical model it proposes has an ontological foundation, with a view to associating human dignity and rights – most notably at the beginning and at the end of life – with the substantial reality of the person, as opposed to associating it with a set of capacities that an individual may or may not exhibit. The reader is then introduced to a case analysis method that links empirical data, anthropological dimensions, and ethical assessment, as well as a set of four practical principles aimed at guiding decisions in a biomedical context.

Finally, it outlines the key components of a personalist, ontologically based, model, by comparing its theoretical setting and its main implications with those of some current bioethical trends.

Resumen

Este artículo presenta la perspectiva bioética del personalismo con fundamentación ontológica. El objetivo de este modelo aplicado a la bioética es proponer un marco adecuado para las cuestiones morales que surgen de las aplicaciones biomédicas a los seres humanos. En primer lugar, se explica que este modelo ético se basa en un fundamento ontológico, con el fin de conectar la dignidad y los derechos de los individuos implicados en cuestiones de bioética —por ejemplo, al principio y al final de la vida— con la realidad sustancial de la persona y no con un conjunto de capacidades que un determinado individuo puede exhibir o puede no exhibir. Después, se presenta el método de análisis de casos propuesto por este modelo, que relaciona los datos empíricos, las dimensiones antropológicas y la valoración ética, y un conjunto de 4 principios prácticos destinado a guiar las decisiones éticas en el contexto biomédico. Los puntos claves del modelo personalista con fundamentación ontológica serán ilustrados también mediante la comparación de su valor teórico y sus principales implicaciones con las de algunas tendencias actuales en el debate bioético.
