Fritz Jahr’s bioethical concept and its infl uence in Latin America: an approach from aesthetics
Fritz Jahr, creator of the concept of bioethics, would have been happy to go to the cinema
to see the fi lm Avatar. He would have enthusiastically donned the darkened 3D glasses and
enjoyed this movie that he had, in a way, already had a glimpse of over seventy years ago.
Because when in 1927 he published his article "Bio-Ethik: Eine Umschau über die ethischen
Beziehunge des Menschen zu Tier und Pfi anze" ("Bioethics: A Review of the Ethical relationships
of Humans to Animals and Plants") he was ahead of his time and he bequeathed us with
what is rightly called a vision. Th is article is written as an acknowledgement of his work and
dedicated to his memory.
