Bioethics is a relatively new discipline in the academic world, a tool for analysis and reflection that provides a common language for dialogue among professionals. For this reason, the theoretical basis and the methodology are useful for anyone who works in the health field, who modifies human life, or who alters our perception of what it means to be human.
In this course, participants will understand and incorporate the concepts of bioethics into interdisciplinary dialogues for the purpose of addressing dilemmas that affect life and the way we culturally deal with health and our human character.
Intended for anyone who seeks to participate in a dialogue about the nature of human beings, health and life, and who seeks to know more about the great technological milestones or theories that call into question what we believed to be true, or that demand from us a specific personal and social stance.
