About this book

This publication reviews the foundations of ethics in the history of Western thinking. It connects these philosophical matters with evolutionary theory and contemporary bioethics, biology and medicine, posing new questions for the dialectics between categorical and contextual ethics. Answers are presented from complexity theory - self-organization and nonlinear dynamics.
