By working through ethical decisions arrived at by consensus, students will see the shortcomings of simple, case-by-case solutions and will learn to appreciate the role bioethics has in universalizing ethical decisions. This in turn will contribute to their understanding of how ethical theory attempts to make practice as coherent as possible. Students will see that theory is neither a slave nor a master of practice, but a partner.
