Conséquentialisme et recours collectif au raisonnement éthique : Remarques sur la valeur de la vie, sur la dignité et sur l'approche de la mise en débat chez J. Glover

Main Article Content

Emmanuel Bernard Picavet


Starting from a reading of Jonathan Glover's Causing Death and Saving Lives, the article addresses the general assumptions involved in conceptions of the dignity of life. Compatibility (or not) with a consequentialist point of view makes it possible to clarify the meaning given to thresholds in the intrapersonal comparisons between states of the world. These themes are then discussed within the perspective of dialogue related to the collective assessment of practical guidelines.
