    Solidarity in the Time of COVID-19?Floris Tomasini - 2021 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 30 (2):234-247.
    This article critically examines how solidarity has been enacted in the first 2 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, mainly, but not exclusively, from a United Kingdom perspective.1 Solidaristic strategies are framed in two ways: aspirations to overcome COVID-19 ; and those that are illusory, incompatible, contradictory, and disrupting of solidaristic ideals. Solidarity can also be understood more widely from a biocentric perspective. In the context of COVID-19 a lack of biocentric solidarity points to a probable cause of the pandemic; where (...)

    Is Post-Mortem Harm Possible? Understanding Death Harm and Grief.Floris Tomasini - 2009 - Bioethics 23 (8):441-449.
    The purpose of this article is not to affirm or deny particular philosophical positions, but to explore the limits of intelligibility about what post-mortem harm means, especially in the light of improper post-mortem procedures at Bristol and Alder Hey hospitals in the late 1990s. The parental claims of post-mortem harm to dead children at Alder Hey Hospital are reviewed from five different philosophical perspectives, eventually settling on a crucial difference of perspective about how we understand harm to the dead. On (...)

  4. Imagining Human Enhancement: Whose Future, Which Rationality?Floris Tomasini - 2007 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 28 (6):497-507.
    This article critically evaluates bettering human life. Because this involves lives that do not exist yet, the article investigates human eugenics and enhancement through the social prism of ‘the imaginary’ (defined ‘as a set of assumptions and concepts for thinking and speaking about human enhancement and its future direction’) [1]. “Exploring basic assumptions underlying the idea of human enhancement” investigates underlying assumptions and claims for human enhancement. Firstly, human eugenics and enhancement entangles a factual as well as a normative claim (...)

    What Is Bioethics: Notes Toward a New Approach?Floris J. W. Tomasini - 2010 - Studies in Ethics, Law, and Technology 4 (2).
    The question what is bioethics is a controversial area of debate amongst practitioners of bioethics, not least because it sets out disciplinary boundaries to practise the subject, which involve deeper assumptions about how one should approach and practise the subject. There are at least four ways of answering the question “what is bioethics?” that raise the controversy aforementioned. These can be identified in the following ways: what has the word bioethics come to mean? What limits of scope should we place (...)

    Vulnerable Bodies: New Directions in Disability Studies.Floris Tomasini - 2019 - Palgrave Macmillan Uk.
    This book offers new direction in disability studies, by integrating the medical and social model of disability. The first aim is to provide an integral approach to thinking about impairment and disability through the integrative lens of being vulnerable. The second aim is to transcend the normative trap which impairment and disability debate finds itself locked in. Disability debate is trapped in a normative struggle to escape oppressive norms. Either, by legitimizing the desire to be free from impairment, where a (...)

    A Broader Notion of Competent Decision Making in Respect to What Is in the Best Interests of Patients Affected by Anorexia.Floris Tomasini - 2010 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 17 (2):155-157.
    Simona Giordano (2010) claims that whether or not anorexics should be allowed to die should not primarily depend on their competence, but on the extent of whether the condition can be alleviated. This implies two outcomes. First, that if an anorexic has a reasonable chance of recovery, competent refusal of treatment can be overridden. Second, that if an anorexic has no realistic chance of recovery, patient refusal needs to be upheld—not, exclusively, on the basis of patient’s decision-making competence, but on (...)
