The Donation of Bodies to Medical Research and Training: Is it Simply the ‘Ultimate Gift’?

Date and Time


MACK 225


By Dr. Karen Houle, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy.

In this paper I use a Foucauldian approach to investigate and critique the practice of the philanthropic donation of cadavers to medical research and training.

Sponsored by 'Initiatives in Global Justice', and the Canada Research Chair in Ethics & Global Social Change. For details, contact Monique Deveaux, Dept. of Philosophy (email address).
