Medical Ethics (PHIL 242) added to summer A term

We’ve added a section of our popular Medical Ethics to the summer quarter schedule. PHIL 242 SECTION C 5 MEDICAL ETHICS (VLPA/I&S) MTWTHF 0940-1150 A-term SLN: 14465 “This course will cover several main topics in medical ethics, including the right to refuse treatment, physician assisted suicide, euthanasia, definitions of disability and disease, and elective disability. The course is suitable for non-majors, so a familiarity with moral philosophy or medicine is helpful, but not required. What is required is a willingness to read closely, think about what you are reading, provide arguments for your beliefs, and engage critically yet respectfully with other’s arguments and beliefs.” Textbooks: Margaret Battin, Rosamond Rhodes, and Anita Silvers (eds.), Physician-Assisted Suicide: Expanding the Debate, New York: Routledge, 1998. Erik Parens and Adrienne Asch (eds.), Prenatal Testing and Disability Rights, Washington, D.C.: Georgetown University Press, 2000.
