Philosophy and Canon Law” 2020, Vol. 6: Between the Culture of the Right to Responsible Parenthood and the Culture of the “New” Human Rights: Reproductive and Sexual (II)

Robert Benne, Pavol Dancák, Tomasz Gałkowski, Piotr Kroczek, Andrzej Pastwa, Stanislav Přibyl, Lucjan Świto, ed. Andrzej Pastwa

The periodical “Philosophy and Canon Law” constitutes an open interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of philosophers and lawyers’ (canonists’) reflections, including representatives of different fields of study. Coping with the issues undertaken in thematic annuals is – from its very assumption – an attempt of providing an answer to complex problems of the dynamically changing world: social, religious, cultural and civilizational. The leading thread of philosophical and legal contemplation in the next two volumes of the journal (I–II), triggered somehow by the context of the 50th anniversary of Paul VI’s Humanae Vitae Encyclical, concentrates around the issues defined by the title and subtitle of the first article by Prof. Marian Machinek: Reproductive Rights versus the Christian Culture of the Body. Two Different Perspectives. “The main point of the disagreement – according to the Autor – between the concept of reproductive rights and the Christian culture of the body concerns the meaning of human corporeality. For the former, human body is, in a certain way, ‘outside’ of the self-determining subject”. The entire volume constitutes an attempt of an answer to the recent appeal of Pope Francis: “We need to return to the message of the Encyclical Humanae Vitae” (Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, n. 82).
