Bioethics: Secular & Jewish Perspectives.
The goals for this course:
- Understand the secular and Jewish-religious legal and ethical frameworks of contemporary medical and research practices;
- Identify, interpret and debate the ethical issues arising from various case studies in bioethics and apply different ethical approaches.
The goal of this class is not to solve fundamental ethical dilemmas, but rather to help to critically grasp the increasing challenges of modern medical technologies for law and ethics.
In winter 2022, we will meet once a week in person and once a week via Zoom video conferencing synchronously.
Assignment & Grading - The final grade will be 30% midterm exam, 40% final paper, 15% participation and 15% homework.
