PHIL 6654 Contemporary Aristotelian Ethics (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This course examine some of the most interesting recent work in moral philosophy done from a broadly Aristotelian perspective. Our course will be divided into two mains section. In the first section, we will consider accounts of fundamental normative notions like: goodness, the good of, good as, and good for. We will pay special attention to possible connections between goodness and nature. In the second section we will look at Aristotelian accounts of practical reasoning and practical wisdom. As part of this, we will consider the eudaimonistic structure of Aristotelian ethics, and challenges to eudaimonism.
