Not going to lie, I would be pretty down to take this course permitted I wasn’t in the middle of midterms and didn’t have 1000 things to do already. Although I’m not a huge fan of manga, sometimes it’s nice to have visual context to some of the toughest issues facing our healthcare systems and society in general (ex. euthanasia, abortion, drugs and studying).

For someone who isn’t too familiar with the topic of bioethics, it’s an interdisciplinary field focusing on the social, legal, and ethical implications of life science and healthcare decisions or topics. I know I am a visual learner so for philosophical or ethical arguments sometimes it’s helpful to have visuals in making sense of things or helping to explain why something is relevant.

Hopefully this course interests a few others out there in sharing this. It’s a completely free course to take from Kyoto University (Japan).
