Dr. Jack Chun, Dr. John Yuen , Dr. Kam-por Yu , Dr. David Wan, Prof. Adrian Bejan , Prof. Ole Döring , HKPolyUx

Unravel the mysteries and meanings of life and death by exploring the journey from birth through ageing and illnesses to death.

Have you ever encountered any matters of life and death? Do they have any meanings to you? Are they mysteries that you could never understand? Or are there any facts about them yet to be uncovered? Are you prepared if they happen unexpectedly in your life? How would you understand them?

If you have ever thought about these questions, this course is for you.

This course begins with a micro-movie presenting a case of fatal traffic accident with a family. You will start reflecting matters of life and death from the perspectives of different family roles. You will then expand your understanding through the journey from birth through ageing and illnesses to death, which forms the core components of this course. An immersive card game and polling questions are designed to articulate and share your own viewpoints. This course will amaze you with diverse interpretations and answers to these perennial questions. This introductory course also prepares you for another advanced course in applied ethics.
