Col. Jessep (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000197/): *You want answers?*

-From A Few Good Men, by Aaron Sorkin

Last time we explored questions surrounding who owns your body, organ donation, and taxpayer funded sex change operations for prisoners. Let's take on a new ethics question, or two

IM continues a new series where we will explore some tough ethical questions.

How to work out the best principles to apply to ethical conflict? When do we break the rules? We 'll work through some specific examples. In conflict, how do we navigate? With an ethical dilemma where we have no apparent common ground, how best to act? What are the legal, medical, and moral ramifications of the paths? What historical lessons can we use as guidance?

.

These will be moderated discussions. The specific ethical topics we'll explore will be announced at the event.

More details coming soon... Date subject to change...
