Instructor: Wesley Sauret. This course meets MWF 11:15 a.m. – 12:05 p.m. in CW 105.

The practice of medicine and the development of health care policy raise ethical questions that are both theoretically challenging and practically important: Is abortion permissible? When are doctors permitted to deceive their patients? Should organ donors be allowed to sell transplantable organs? What norms should guide our treatment of animals? We will be reading a selection of contemporary papers that address these questions.
