El cadáver humano en el arte y la bioética: la Pietá Rondanini de Miguel Ángel

Gustavo Figueroa


According to bioethics, life is a fundamental but not an absolute good. Therefore the value of a person resides in being alive, no matter in which state such person is. The concept of brain death is legally and ethically accepted as the definition of death. In artworks, human beings are revealed as they are. Michelangelo’s Pietá Rondanini captures and captures what a human corpse is, in its most intimate appearance. The artist boldly reveals its essence.
