Redefining Autonomy, Dignity and Intimacy in a Postmodern Society
Keywords:human dignity, human autonomy, intimacy, medical ethics, Jean Pierre Clero.
From a traditional perspective, ethics is a part of philosophy. Also traditionally, we have become accustomed to having a profoundly philosophical discourse on autonomy, dignity and, more recently, intimacy of the individual. On the historical axis of human knowledge, just recently concepts have been claimed, recontextualized and redesigned by domains extraneous to philosophy. Especially in the medical field, along with the emergence of the modern bioethics, there is a need to correlate the traditional theories with the trends of a postmodern society, characterized by effervescence: in reactions, in thinking, in change, in adaptation.
