Abstract:

Justice seems to be a fixed principle in bioethics--but never-ending  
discussions arise when the principle has to be put into practice.  
Allocation and distribution of financial means, focus in research and  
the use of generics are only some points of discussion. Derrida's  
approach to justice seems to undermine the idea, that justice can be  
transformed into rules or into the organization of a system. For  
Derrida deconstrucion itself is a way to justice. The lecture wants to  
ask, what can the discussion on justice in health can learn from  
Derrida's point of view.
