Abstract

This paper discusses some aspects of natural theology (theologia naturalis), following the ideas of Baruch Spinoza. Natural theology is presented as a powerful concept capable of bridging traditional theology, ethics, and natural science, enabling original and meaningful perspectives on contemporary problems, and fostering ways of ethical engagement in the modern world. General ethical problems in clinical trials, as well as particular studies on phosphoethanolamine and hydroxychloroquine for cancer and COVID-19 therapy, are used to ground the discussion into real-life applications.
