PHIL 5525 Contemporary Aristotelian Naturalism (Spring: 3 )
In recent decades, there has been a revival of interest in Aristotelian naturalism in the work of philosophers such as Elizabeth Anscombe and Philppa Foot. In the first part of the course, we will consider how contemporary Aristotelians naturalists have connected ethics and the "logic of life." The second part of the course focuses on the role that moral virtue plays in Aristotelian naturalism. The third part of the course examines Aristotelian accounts of justice compared to rule-consequentialism, on the hand, and Kantian-inspired contractualism, on the other.
