Description
Summary:Fritz Jahr’s maxim “Respect any living being inherently as an end-in-itself and, if possible, treat it as such”, first published in an essay in 1927 where he also introduced the term “bio-ethics”, is reflectively analyzed from the perspective of the Islamic tradition. The Islamic conception of human, animal, and plant is presented and central norms applied to the treatment of animals and plants are discussed in their practical implications. Eventually, the applicability of Jahr’s normative notion of ‘end-in-itself’ can be applied to the treatment of animals and plants in the context of Islamic bioethics. This discussion aims at answering the question if a global bioethics can be developed.
