Violence : the unrelenting assault on human dignity by Wolfgang Huber( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newspapers daily document the violence that rends our times. Who can account for its relentless pervasion? Why is it also found fascinating or gripping? What is wrong with societies that produce it?" "Answers are elusive and fragile, renowned ethicist Huber believes. For, even apart from the gross brutalities of crime and war, he finds more subtle and covert violence in childrearing, family intimacy, schools, employee relations, entertainment, and competitive sports. Huber shows how the constant, everyday disregard of human dignity is a root of violence in all spheres, how the inviolability of dignity is the one absolutely necessary premise of countering violence, and how we can become personally vigilant in the service of human dignity." "Huber's clear, sweeping creed articulates principles of a planetary ethos, a public theology for rebuilding personal and political culture rent by violence."--Jacket

Ethics : the fundamental questions of our lives by Wolfgang Huber( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wolfgang Huber is Germany's most important theological ethicist, and this is a translation of his 2013 book published with CH Beck. Acknowledging our pluralistic world, Huber analyzes twenty ethical issues that emerge during the course of our lives: the future of the family, genetic handicaps and genetic enhancement, combatting global hunger and poverty, environmental degradation, religious freedom, the right to health, the expanding influence of the media, the true purpose of business, what we owe our descendants, global conflict and war and peace, the role of science, extending life and accepting death, and so on. In each chapter he provides a concrete example showing the relevance of the fundamental ethical question, then explains how one can think through possible responses and reactions. Huber is firmly within the Protestant tradition and takes philosophical cues from Kant. As such, he emphasizes the connections between personal, professional, and institutional ethics and demonstrates how human relationships lie at the center of our ethical lives. His aim is to articulate a theology of what he calls "responsible freedom" that transcends individualistic self-realization and includes communal obligations

Ethik : die Grundfragen unseres Lebens von der Geburt bis zum Tod by Wolfgang Huber( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in German and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neue Entwicklungen der Medizin haben die Entscheidung über Geburt und Tod wie nie zuvor in die Hände des Menschen gelegt. Damit stellen sich schwerwiegende Fragen: Welcher Embryo darf überleben? Wie lange darf ein Leben über das Erträgliche hinaus verlängert werden? Weltweite soziale Konflikte führen zu der Forderung, in Verantwortung für den Frieden notfalls Waffengewalt einzusetzen. Mit Klimawandel und Staatsverschuldung verbinden sich neue ökologische, soziale und politische Probleme. Wolfgang Huber erklärt, in welcher Weise die aktuellen Herausforderungen uns alle angehen, und formuliert Maßstäbe des Menschlichen für ihre Lösung. Sein Buch ist ein wunderbar klar geschriebenes Vademecum der Ethik, das uns die wirklich wichtigen Fragen unseres Lebens bewusst macht. "Das Buch ist ein weiser Führer durch die ethischen Lebensprobleme der Einzelnen und der Gesellschaften heute." Karl Kardinal Lehmann "Wolfgang Huber und mich verbindet immer das Empfinden eines elementaren Zusammenhanges zwischen christlichem Bekenntnis und politischer Verantwortung."
