In Memory of Karl-Otto Apel: The challenges of a universalistic ethics of collective co-responsibility

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
On the basis of Karl-Otto Apels’ diagnosis of the shortcomings of philosophical ethics in general, and any ethics of individual accountability in particular, I give an outline how these shortcoming are currently to be articulated in the context of ecological crisis and socio-technical change. This will be followed with three interpretations of Karl-Otto Apels’ proposal for an ethics of collective coresponsibility. In conclusion, I will advocate that only a further social evolution of the systems of science, economy and law will enable a possible institutionalization of collective co-responsibility by means of a new innovation paradigm: responsible innovation.
