Everyone engaged in the interdisciplinary bioethical research knows that bioethics has to translate different scientific languages in one another and these different scientific languages often relate to different normative orders, if not apparently exclusive world views. A bioethicist therefore must have a reflective knowledge of the different “logics” of the languages that need to be combined in each effort to solve a bioethical problem. The “dialogue” between sciences is a “dialogue” between comprehensive “systems” of interpreting the world; it is a dialogue between “perspectives” which normally include their own concepts of what is true and valuable and of how truths and values should be expressed. An integrative bioethics needs to acknowledge this fact and to at least foster reflection on the problem.
