From the CTY Summer Catalog:
Bioethics first introduces students to some of the classical foundations of ethical reasoning; they examine the underpinnings of logical argumentation as well as philosophical methodologies. Next, students apply these philosophical frameworks to engage complex ethical dilemmas ranging from experimental drug trials to abortion for the purpose of avoiding genetic defects. As students critically confront issues posed by popular media sources and the scientific community, they analyze primary philosophical works, participate in discussions and debates, and write analytical essays.
