Abstract

The contribution proposes an excursus that goes from criticism to the ideology of homo oeconomicus, to education in bioethics as a training in solidarity, passing through the global bioethics of Van Potter and highlighting its ecological curvature, ending with a combination of bioethics and Morin’s ethics of complexity. If the radical ethical crisis, that really afflicts contemporary man, is based on the reductionist conception that solves man in the economistic instance, we urgently need to renew the ordinary gnoseological and moral categories, so that the man can rediscover the complexity of its identity, in which the values of altruism and solidarity are inscribed. In this mission, bioethics and complex thought share the common purpose of educational reform.
