The summer school will take up a question, which is central to Integrative Bioethics: the various forms of the position of man in relation to nature, including human-nature interaction. The fact that nature cannot simply be an external „resource“ for man already results from man’s corporeality and bodily existence (Leiblichkeit). Also in other respects the spheres of nature and culture as second nature are not simply unrelated to each other, which has been brought to attention in various ways in the philosophical tradition from antiquity on. Especially in times of an increasing „virtualization“ of life, the systematic and conceptual challenge is to think together man‘s embeddedness in nature and man’s indepen­dence from it in an appropriate, non-reductionist and therefore also future-oriented way.
