Description

Professor Benjamin proposes a second look into issues of Bioethics, the study of moral conduct in life sciences and medicine. It’s a terrain filled with complexity and ethical dilemmas at the cutting edge of contemporary life. This time he’ll delve into five new contentious issues: truth-telling and confidentiality; physician-assisted dying; advanced directives for Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia; integrity-preserving compromise in end-of-life decision making; and reproductive technologies. There’s much to ponder regarding how current medical science and medicine have created ethical quandaries in each of these areas. OLLI and Professor Benjamin offer you thoughtful discussion of them.
