Synthesis on looking at Ben Goldacre’s
book, Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients, through the
ethical lens of Peter Singer’s Practical Ethics. Analyze one or more of the
problems presented by Goldacre using the preference-utilitarian ethical principles of Singer as
presented in his book.
Also understand Singer’s approach to ethics and Goldacre’s understanding of the problems of the modern pharmaceutical industry, its regulators, and the academics who conduct trials.
