HCE 553 Philosophical Ethical Theories in Bioethics (3 credits)

This course will study from a philosophical perspective the various ethical theories that have influenced the development of bioethics. The course will use a historical method and concentrate, among others, on the ethical theories of virtue, teleology and deontology in their historical contexts. These theories will then be placed in the context of the development of contemporary bioethics in the United States and Europe.
