This course examines questions about human nature, finitude, the meaning of suffering, and
appropriate uses of medical technology in the face of natural limitations, such as disease and
death, that humans encounter. Issues may include prenatal/genetic testing, trans-humanism,
enhancement technologies, cloning, euthanasia, and organ transplantation. Judeo-Christian
and cross-cultural perspectives on illness are considered.
