PHIL 1510 Ethics (Summer: 3 )

Course Description

This course introduces students to the main schools of ethical thought in the Western philosophical tradition. We will examine works by philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Kant, Nietzsche, Rawls, and Martin Luther King, Jr. We will ask how the ethical issues focused on by these thinkers can help us reflect on the way we live our lives and what are reasonable ethical expectations we can have of others.
