(Title) The ambiguity about the ownership of the building and the land occupied by the Hospital for Special Diseases of Thessaloniki and the absence of specific doctors (anesthesiologist, neurologist, surgeon), pose serious problems in “Infectious».

    The administration explained that the hospital serves patients from throughout northern Greece for special tests of infectious diseases and infection. As far as the ownership was reported that the Italian state claims ownership of the building even after a court ruling in 1965 forced the Greek government to pay rent on the Italian embassy.

    PART ONE: THE CLAIMS OF COMMUNITY Professor Sandel presents Kants objections to Aristotles theory. Kant believes politics must respect individual freedom. People must always respect other peoples freedom to make their own choices-a universal duty to humanity-but for Kant, there is no other source of moral obligation. The discussion of Kants view leads to an introduction to the communitarian philosophy. Communitarians argue that, in addition to voluntary and universal duties, we also have obligations of membership, solidarity, and loyalty. These obligations are not necessarily based on consent. We inherit our past, and our identities, from our family, city, or country. But what happens if our obligations to our family or community come into conflict with our universal obligations to humanity? PART TWO: WHERE OUR LOYALTY LIES Professor Sandel leads a discussion about the arguments for and against obligations of solidarity and membership. Do we owe more to our fellow citizens that to citizens of other countries? Is patriotism a virtue, or a prejudice for ones own kind? If our identities are defined by the particular communities we inhabit, what becomes of universal human rights? Using various scenarios, students debate whether or not obligations of loyalty can ever outweigh universal duties of justice.
