16. A Creative and Forward-Looking Bioethics

I have argued that the focus of bioethics must be on a livable future for everyone, human and non-human. In this chapter I argue that how to get to such a future is not so much a puzzle to be solved as it is an exercise in creativity and playfulness. At the same time, staying with the trouble means also thinking of ourselves as trouble and the troubles we make. It means being aware of the world-making of humans and other beings.
