Expansion and deepening of knowledge of ethics in terms of selected issues and theories; advanced ethical reasoning; the ability to relate selected issues and theories of ethics to one another, to analyze them in the context of current research discussion, to question them autonomously and to relate them to current social problems.

Applied ethics’ various domains reflect social problems, needs and trends. That currently a "pandemic ethics" is emerging thus is not surprising. It can also be explained by the fact that almost all medical issues as well as legal regulations relating to SARS-Cov-2 raise weighty ethical questions and sometimes even entail dilemmas. Philosophical ethics here in particular has a sorting, clarifying and reflecting function, which is always opposed to all unifying "black and white" thinking. The lecture will introduce concrete problem areas that directly affect our lives. In doing so, it wants to contribute to the cognitive mastering of a crisis, to which we cannot simply withdraw through a theoretical focus, but to which we can at least try to distance ourselves "sine ira et studia". Among the problem areas addressed are: Science Communication, Information Uncertainty, and Trust in Epistemic Authority; How to Deal with Other Political Opinions; Does Freedom of Information Require "Guardians of Truth"?; Media Ethics in Pandemics; Ethics of Political Leadership; Pandemic Management in Democracies and Dictatorships; Pandemic Management and Human Rights; Pandemic Management and International Cooperation/Competition; Patient Prioritization or "Triage" and Euthanasia; Vaccination Between Self-Gain and Public Interest; Controversial Biohazard Research, and others.
