Fritz Jahr, a Protestant Pastor in Halle an der Saale, coined the original term Bioethics already in 1927 and formulated in critical response to Immanuel Kant's Categorical Imperative a Bioethics Imperative for the future of integrative bioethics: "Respect every living Being as an end in itself and treat it, if possible, as such!" Leading bioethicists from America, Asia and Europe discuss Jahr's visionary concept of an ethics of "bios", integrating the ethics of land, community, health, and culture in light of global challenges in the 21. century. The book includes all 16 long forgotten articles on bioethics and ethics by Jahr from 1927 to 1947 in English translation.
