Die Bedeutung von Religion in bioethischen Diskursen hat in den letzten Jahren große Aufmerksamkeit erfahren. Unter diesem Stichwort verbirgt sich ein ganzes Bündel unterschiedlicher Probleme. Es geht dabei sowohl um den Einfluss, den die Kirchen und religiöse Akteure auf politische Entscheidungsprozesse nehmen, als auch um die religiöse Prägung von Mentalitäten, Argumentationen und Begriffen. Obwohl sich häufig auf dieselben Texte und dieselben theologischen Traditionen berufen wird, ergeben sich große Unterschiede in der Bewertung konkreter gegenwärtiger Herausforderungen wie etwa der Stammzellforschung oder der Sterbehilfe im internationalen und interreligiösen Vergleich. Es wird deutlich, dass für die Frage nach der Religion in bioethischen Diskursen die Einbindung in die jeweilige kulturelle Debattenlage von großer Bedeutung ist. Der Aufklärung dieses Zusammenhangs von Religion und Bioethik dient der Band. Die Beiträge zeigen in unterschiedlicher disziplinärer und methodischer Annäherung die Verflechtungen von Religion und Bioethik in unterschiedlichen Ländern (Europa und Israel) mit unterschiedlichen religiösen Landschaften. Auch wird danach gefragt, wie auf diesem divergenten kulturellen Hintergrund gemeinsame Perspektiven der Bioethik zu entwickeln sind.

The Proceedings of the Karlsruhe Academic Session (1997) of the International Academy of the Philosophy of the Sciences cover the topic of philosophy of technology. Half a dozen of other pertinent topical papers have been added in order to extend the topics dealt with and to reach a rather comprehensive overview of this multi-ramified field. Nowadays philosophy of technology is not only confronted with new, anthropological and social as well as political problems to deal with, but also with methodological problems of the mutual interactions between science and technology, with problems of reliability and viability of technology assessment, e. g. with risks, environmental and social impact assessments. The importance and necessity of a philosophy and a practice-oriented ethics of technology will drastically rise and grow in the near future.

In answer to the persistence of technology, Giallardetz calls for a contemporary Christian spirituality marked by the search for God in our daily engagements and an asceticism that cultivates the paschal rhythms of life and death. These are cultivated, say Gaillardetz, by the distinctive practices of the Christian community, especially the celebrations of the liturgy.
