Consensual foundations of the policy of protecting the genetic information

Paweł Kwiatkowski


The paper offers an analysis of the policy of protecting the genetic information. This policy, based on counterbalancing the practical dimension of genetics with the protection of individual rights, exemplifies an action tied to directives which are based on the normative convictions fitting the concept of communicative rationality. To underpin his hypothesis, the author introduces the notion of genetic discrimination and offers a survey of empirical research in this field, as well as examples of the policy of protecting the genetic information from the perspective of communicative action theory.
