H109: Debates in Bioethics in Splash Splash Spring 2022 (Apr. 23 - 24, 2022)
In this class, we will explore various ideas and values that come to play in a discussion about bioethics. With our medical world constantly evolving, we need to find a way to deal with certain controversies that will come up. Throughout the class, we will learn about new topics in the field of bioethics and explore important terms and concepts relating to them. After reading passages on these topics, we will then discuss these big questions. For example: “Should genetic enhancement be allowed if a couple is using embryonic selection to choose their baby?” “When a person expresses different interests before and after developing a severe case of dementia, which version of the person should we listen to?” This discussion-based class will allow you to understand more about these pressing issues in the field of bioethics while engaging with other students about your own perspectives on these topics.
