PHI-475 Biomedical Ethics

Biomedical Ethics is an exploration of complex contemporary ethical problems from the fields of biomedicine, healthcare, and environmental studies. Students will apply classical and contemporary ethical and moral theories, along with the principles of scientific integrity, to a range of problems such as human experimentation and informed consent, end-of-life issues, reproductive technology, genetic privacy, abortion, resource allocation, and the responsibilities of humans toward their environment. Case studies will play an integral role in the evaluation of these topics. Students will be asked to think critically about these issues, and they will be required to make and defend principled moral judgments in their written assignments.
