Inhalt, Kommentar

Bioethics deals with ethical questions related to medicine, other healthcare fields, and life sciences. It came about after the serious cases of misconduct by medical practitioners in concentration camps and in the Tuskagee Syphilis Study were revealed. Organ donation, informed consent, and cloning are examples of questions discussed in bioethics. Since the second half of the last century, feminist and other critical voices have questioned the direction and focus of mainstream bioethics. Critics argue, for instance, that the concerns of marginalized groups are neglected and that the impact of power imbalances in medicine is not adequately addressed. Moreover, it is claimed that analyses of concrete cases show that focus on abstract moral principles is not fruitful. This course will provide an overview of these criticisms.

The course starts with a general introduction to bioethics and feminist bioethics. We will then read texts that either criticize mainstream bioethics or aim at offering alternative perspectives to it. The topics that will be discussed during the course include, for example: autonomy, reproduction, pregnancy and other issues related to parenting, care work (in families and in institutions), public health ethics (for instance, health care inequities), disability, and global health responsibilities.
