Research Topics in Bioethics - PHIL706

This unit examines contemporary research topics in bioethics and cinematic ethics through the medium of film, supplemented with readings. The selected topics align with the research projects and expertise of members of the Philosophy Department. Examples of potential topics include: the ethics of animal-human relationships; cinematic ethics; ethics of organ donation and procurement; ethics of surgery and surgical innovation; the nature of moral cognition; and justice and public health ethics. Students will develop an in-depth knowledge of the major debates relevant to each topic, and acquire the necessary research skills for pursuing their own research project.
