ABSTRACT

This paper is aimed at identifying the societal impacts ofxenotransplantation when it is actually implemented. A Delphi survey was conducted in Jeju, South Korea for achieving this aim, and then the implications of the societal impacts perceived by these experts were interpreted.The impact of xenotransplantation, if implemented, has been de-bated based largely on moral dilemmas and the risks inherent in its technology, focusing on its negative impacts. However, this paper identi-fied that xenotransplantation, if implemented, will have a negative and positive impact on many societal areas and the natural world, with dif-ference in its strength by the category of societal area and natural world. Even for the same area, xenotransplantation will have both pos-itive and negative impacts. This implies that xenotransplantation has 2 ..

This would mean the impacts are not discrete, but rather relative.The impact will not be the end in itself, but rather it will work as a determinant of a societal system being restructured, and the re-structured societal system will be again a determinant of xenotransplanta ..tion in terms of how to and in what way it should be implemented. This process may be termed a D(driving-force)-S(state)-R(response) causal mechanism.
