Chapter Summary

The heated discussion about the issue of death with dignity in the case of the Florida woman who was on life-support for fifteen years, has become the object of public attention in Japan. The waves of political and economical globalisation have neither produced any harmony nor a peaceful federation of the world, but on the contrary, a consciousness of crisis, feelings of nationalism and localism, since the economic imbalance is becoming more visible. Criticising such a type of globalisation is based on universal capitalism, feminist theology proposes a global sisterhood, in and by which women are ready to mutually help suffering women all over the world. With regard to the complex subject of 'Technology, Life and Death', the author proposes suggestions from the viewpoint of feminist theology, which aims to deconstruct androcentric ethics. The intention of feminist ethics are summarised in the keywords: 'autonomy', 'mutual relations', 'care', and 'justice'.

Keywords: feminist ethics; globalisation; Japan; post-modern feminism; technology
