The course considers the relationship between law and ethics. The starting point is a philosophical analysis of ethical issues that seeks answers to following questions: what determines one's relation to its other? How does the relation between one and the other determine each other's subjectivity? Who/what is the legal subject? What sets the ethical environment and how does this environment affect different subjects? Shifting from the philosophical approach, the course considers practical aspects of ethics and probes ethical issues in the workplace, medical research, technological development, and humans' relationship with the environment. Students will cover a broad range of interest areas and develop an understanding of the link between theory and practice of ethics and law.
