Skrócony opis:

The course aims to present the main problems of bioethics as an interdisciplinary field bordering on biology, medicine, philosophy, sociology and psychology. In a wider perspective, it is a branch of ecological ethics that covers all forms of life. The lectures touch upon issues related to the rights and interests of animals, indicate the differences in approach to nature in shallow and deep ecology. In a narrower approach, bioethics is medical ethics, focusing on the problems of increasing divergence between scientific progress and traditional morality. Discussing specific bioethical issues, including, for example, abortion or transplantation, will illustrate the growing conflict between the perceptions of human life in terms of value and quality.
