This seminar considers what is required of a health care system in the U.S. by considerations of justice. Such questions as the following are taken up: Do people have a right to a basic level of health care? What financing and delivery system is most fair? Should doctors (or legislators?) ration scarce medical resources, especially to the elderly, the poor, or persons with AIDS?

Prerequisite: PHL 131 and either 312 or 375 or permission of instructor. Offered infrequently.
