PL 255 - Ethics (3)

This course is a critical examination of a range of major ethical theories, where students will systematically reason through and discuss major ethical notions and notions of ethical agency. Some of the questions that might be covered include but are not limited to: How do we as members of communities live? How ought we live? What are the differences between good and bad choices? Why should I act other than what is in my self-interest? Do I have duties to myself and others? If so, what are those duties? What kinds of action are morally significant or irrelevant to moral thinking? PRE-2015 CORE: Level II. 2015 CORE: Social Justice & Civic Life, Transform.
