Summary of Lecture This course explores scientific, technological, and environmental issues with major ethical implications and their consequence for public policy. It introduces students to the fields of bioethics and environmental ethics focusing on the impact of biotechnologies on our lives, our changing views of our relationship to the environment, and the impacts of these developments on public policies.

Applied ethics for public policy engages with questions like: -
? What is the connection between the development of assistive reproductive technologies and ethical judgments about the use of human embryos for scientific research?
? Do new technologies introduce new ethical and social responsibilities, and what should policy-makers do about them?
? Is it ethically permissible to enhance our bodies and minds using technology?
? Do only humans matter morally or do other living non-human beings count too?
? Under what circumstances would it be ethically permissible to conduct experiments on animals?
? To what extent are environmental problems ethical problems?
? Does the threat of global climate change pose new ethical and policy problems?

We will explore these and other important questions, drawing from some of the most influential recent thinkers on the applied ethics and public policy.
