FINAL EXAM
MEDICAL ETHICS
Please answer all three questions. Good luck!

  1. We have discussed various kinds of human enhancement throughout the semester. There is a related term for it: “transhumanism”: a movement whose goal is to fundamentally transform what it means to be a human being by developing and making widely available technologies to enhance our intellectual, physical, and psychological capabilities—mostly, without limits. Please choose one option:

Option #1: Imagine that you are arguing with a (smart) transhumanist who

supports all kinds of human enhancements for what she takes to be good

reasons, and try to convince her that she is wrong.

Additionally Option #2: Imagine that you are the transhumanist and are arguing with a

(smart) anti-enhancement advocate. Convince him that you are right.

  1. In The House of God, with time, Roy began to dehumanize his patients (following in the footsteps of Pinkus and some others). In fact, some physicians believe it is necessary to remain emotionally unattached to their patients for professional impartiality, self-care, and other reasons.

Also, others argue that patients have to be viewed as unique, individual, and, importantly, whole human beings who are owed all of a physician’s attention, care, and perhaps even empathy and love. Do you think that Shem (the author) takes a position on this debate in the book, and if so, what is he trying to say?

Whatever your argument might be about Shem’s intent and/or message, do you think that he is right? Why or why not?

  1. Lastly, what is public health, and how is it different from other kinds of medical practices?

In addition, what are some examples of public health policies? In the era of COVID-19, what are some of the moral issues raised by governmental involvement in collective and individual health?

Lastly, In other words, ought the government, in the form of the CDC, for example, have the right to dictate and/or enforce both personal and group behaviors “for the public good”? Why or why not?
