Sample text

79 Während die politischen Vertragstheorien von Hobbes, Locke und Rawls einen einmaligen und rein fiktiven Konsens zur Begründung staatlicher Herrschaft ausreichen lassen, auf dessen Basis etwa die Demokratie und damit das Mehrheitsprinzip für die nachfolgenden Entscheidungen etabliert werden, ist dies für die ethischen Konsenstheorien nicht möglich. 80 Die Autonomie des Einzelnen in moralischen Fragen kann nicht durch eine einmalige Übertragung der Entscheidungsbefugnis auf einen Herrscher beseitigt werden.

Diese grundlegende Differenzierung ist für eine weitere wichtige Unterscheidung hinsichtlich der Art des Dissenses von Bedeutung, nämlich der von Brugger und Besson gestellten Frage nach der Auflösbarkeit oder Unauflösbarkeit des Dissenses bzw. nach dem epistemischen im Gegensatz zum metaphysischen Dissens. Während abstrakte Dissense, wie noch gezeigt werden wird, in ihrem Kern, der differierenden Weltanschauung oder grundlegenden Moralvorstellung in der Regel unauflösbar sind, kommt es bei einem Dissens über Einzelfragen darauf an, ob es sich um normative Dissense handelt, die in metaphysischen Fragen begründet und damit unauflösbar sind, oder um Interessenkonflikte, die durch Kompromiss lösbar sein könnten.

Schon im Altertum wurde der Konsens als Indiz für die Richtigkeit von Aussagen angesehen, so bei Aristoteles, Nikomachische Ethik, zitiert nach der Neuübersetzung v. Rolfes, 2. , 1921, S. ), Moralischer Konsens – technische Eingriffe in die menschliche Fortpflanzung als Modellfall, 1996, S. 60, 61). In der politischen Philosophie des 17. Jahrhunderts erlangt der Konsens als Legitimitätskriterium für Staatsgewalt konstitutive Bedeutung, so zuerst bei Hobbes, Leviathan oder Stoff, Form und Gewalt eines kirchlichen und bürgerlichen Staates, 3.
