Applied Bioethics Magazine


Applied Bioethics Magazine is a web-based semi-annual publication that takes on the bioethical issues of today and helps you to explore and understand their meaning for your life.

The magazine’s philosophy exists at the intersection of classical philosophy, Catholic theology, and healthcare. It draws heavily from the Catholic Intellectual Tradition. It’s supported by some of history’s greatest thinkers, from the Ancient Greeks through to the modern era. The objective is to break down complex bioethical issues into bite-sized pieces. In doing so, bioethics becomes more approachable and understandable.

Health sciences and biomedical technologies are advancing at a rapid clip. As healthcare utilization increases and our understanding of medicine and the hard sciences advances, we’re in a dilemma. We face more bioethical questions than any previous generation, while at the same time we’re unprepared to meet these challenges. We are living longer and have available to us technologies that promise to alleviate human suffering. Understanding the basic tenants of bioethics is not just useful, it’s essential.

In the midst of this scientific progress, society is experiencing an intellectual break. Distrust of traditional institutions and processes risks unmooring science from any structure that constrains it. Science is capable of doing great good for society. It is also capable of inflecting great harm and misery. Bioethics are the guardrails that keep science focused on the good.

Applied Bioethics Magazine will help you in your personal education. Each issue takes on a singular subject, and investigates it from different angles. After reading each issue, you’ll have a better understanding of the subject and how it applies to your life.

The human person reaches their fullest potential through education. Bioethics is a nascent field of study, but one whose importance grows with every new discovery. Let Applied Bioethics Magazine help you to be prepared to take on the bioethical challenges in your life, and in the lives of those whom you love.
