Recent German Health Care Legislation - An Example for Postmodern Social Ethics ?
Social ethics of affirmative post-modernists are discussed in relation to recent German health care legislation.
It could be shown that : 1. the health care legislation 1989 and 1993 only partially fullfils the postmodern call for « cultivation of individual responsibility », 2. both laws largely fail to enforce the principle of subsidiarity, and 3. postmodernist thinking is weak on the question of global strategies but strong in the area of individualism and subjectivity.
We conclude that postmodern social ethics are useful to compensate areas largely neglected by recent German health care legislation, rather than that the legislation is an example of postmodern social ethics.
