PHIL-3346EL – Bioethics: Case Studies

This course is an examination of the case study as a form of philosophical analysis in bioethics, as well as an exploration of how case studies themselves shape our understanding of what is at stake in an ethical dilemma. Students are asked to consider both fictional cases created to facilitate the discussion of bioethical issues, as well as significant factual cases which illustrate the philosophical, ethical, and legal issues raised by these advancements. Students learn to reason carefully about the nature of ethical dilemmas and are provided with the tools necessary to reach a decision about what should be done. (lec 3) cr 3.
