This course starts with some sessions explaining and applying the basic methods in bioethics such as principalism, casuistry, analogy, and wide reflective equilibrium. Afterwards some sessions will be given on making taxonomies (recognising, categorising, separating different types of ethical arguments).

The core of the course is focused on a central theme, namely the slippery slope argument. Beside sthis central theme, the students will be supported in the development of their personally chosen theme.
