Cite: , Issues of early life in postmodern philosophies according to Hugo Tristram Engelhardt, "Kultura - Media - Teologia", 2018( 32) nr 1, s. 179-191.
The contemporary view on the beginning of life requires good comprehension of who human is as well as his beliefs. The article presents selected thoughts of Hugo Tristam Engelhardt on the problem of the beginning of life and artificial insemination. These reflections come from Engelhardt’s utilitarian standpoint. The point of view is confronted with a line of thoughts of other authors, who represent personalistic bioethics to show how to manage proposals from a strict ethical point of view.
