Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Basic course in life ethics including the following topics:
1. How do we understand life? What do we mean by that term?
2. What is meant by the command "Thou shalt not kill"?
3. Human dignity, esp. at the beginning and the end of life;

We deal with these topics by analyzing the classical problems of abortion, reproductive medicine, suicide, death penalty, euthanasia and ecological ethics.
