Introduction to Bioethics

Description

Bioethics is a field of reflection that focuses on the ethical issues raised by the advances in biomedical sciences and technologies, pushing even further the limits of human control over one's body, its future, and its environment. The course will explore this interdisciplinary field by identifying approaches, methods and main issues: procreation, the beginning of life, end of life, genetic technologies, organ and tissue transplantation, neuroscience, research and experimentation on humans, clinical decisions, and healthcare policies. The contribution of theology to these ethical questions and issues will be examined.
