In this seminar, we’ll consider philosophical questions that arise at the edges of life. We will inquire into the ethics of reproduction, considering both the choice to have children and the choice to terminate a pregnancy. We’ll think about death, what it is, whether it is bad, and whether we may assist others in dying. We’ll think about love at the edges of life — and the role it plays in the ethical decisions that we make. And finally, we’ll think about the law at the edges of life — asking how it should or shouldn’t regulate decisions that are made there.
