This course discusses contemporary controversies arising from biological and medical sciences and technologies. We will see now the debate between general moral principles extends to the biomedical context. A wide range of issues may be discussed, including genetic modification, organ market, patient autonomy, euthanasia and assisted suicide, reproduction, surrogation, etc. It helps future biomedical practitioners make ethically informed decisions and equip otherwise interested students with philosophical tools to reflect on these issues.
