Brocker I 607
Responsibility/Jonas: Initiated by the 1973 Club of Rome report on the limits of growth (see Progress/Club of Rome), among other things, an ecological awareness developed worldwide that dealt with the risks of modern large-scale technology.
This is the historical background to Jonas' ethical main work The Principle of Responsibility (1979). Jonas' thesis: the survival of humanity is endangered and we all bear responsibility that "a humanity exists". (1) See Duty/Jonas, Ethics/Jonas, Existence/Jonas.
Brocker I 608
Modern technology, however, has created an expanded dimension of responsibility that extends to the entire biosphere. See Nature/Jonas, Ethics/Jonas.
New types of responsibility are future and remote responsibility (2), which must complement the existing near and present ethics.
Brocker I 616
Jonas: "Power combined with reason carries responsibility in itself." (3)
