Ethics and the Body


Program Masters
Field of Study Ethics
Class# E-404

While ethics might be more easily associated with the mind or the heart, one cannot ignore the fact that all of life is also embodied – including how we understand ethical responsibility. In this course, students will examine the ethical dimensions of all the issues that come with being human beings in human bodies. Topics include poverty, disease and health care; sexuality; food security and consumption; representations of the body in popular culture; and abortion.
