Medical Ethics PHIL 148 @ Binghamton University, Sum 11

20May/110

Welcome

Welcome to Phil 148, Medical Ethics!

Medical Ethics is concerned with the intersection of medical theory, practice, and policy. This course introduces students to the methods of medical ethics by engaging them with the controversies that arise from such topics as assisted suicide and euthanasia, assisted reproduction and abortion, and the problems of justice and health care access. By examining various controversies, students will learn how to use philosophical moral theories to make sense of moral quandaries that arise in a field that regularly deals with the boundaries between health and sickness, function and dysfunction, and life and death. At the same time, students will examine how these moral quandaries raise questions about the effectiveness of philosophical moral theories.
