Description
PHILOSOPHY OF MEDICINE
** available as of 06/30/2021
This seminar course provides a graduate level introduction to the philosophy of medicine. We will explore both classic and recent work. In line with the orientation of the field, we will examine metaphysical/conceptual and epistemic questions in medicine and medical research rather than the kinds of questions traditionally asked in the field of bioethics. Also following the contemporary focus of philosophy of medicine, readings are situated in the philosophy of science.
