PHIL 205 - Literature, Film and Medicine

Description
Literature, Film and Medicine: Ethical Perspectives A philosophical and interdisciplinary study of how narrative forms-literature, cinema, and memoir-may be applied in medical contexts. Through critical discussion of a diversity of works ranging over individual experiences of disease, disability, and end-of-life, students learn how engagement with fictional and autobiographical narratives can enhance the study of healthcare ethics. Topics include dimensions of the healing relationship, questions of meaning in the face of suffering and disease, crossing cultural boundaries, and extending our knowledge of the human experience of mortality.
