Module Description

On virtually a daily basis there is a report of a new case which stretches the boundaries of medicine and raises yet another new moral dilemma. Such cases generate a lot of public anxiety that medical science has gone too far. This course considers such questions as: How are we to shield ourselves from the excesses of technical advances in medicine while preserving the benefits of modern health care? It also looks at such pressing contemporary ethical issues as euthanasia, genetics, abortion etc?

John Scally: PhD, lectures in Theology in TCD and was a secondary school teacher for 20 years. He is the author of over 40 books. His most recent book is ‘Inspiration for all Seasons: Celtic Wisdom for Today’.
