7. A Process Ontology for Bioethics

I continue on the path of a developmental outlook on life. I argue that such an outlook implies that bioethics focuses less on what we can control, for example, what we can know from our genes and more on dealing with chance and uncertainties. I use ideas from Whitehead and process philosophy to challenge a representational approach to bioethics.
