Course Description

An introduction to ethics, the part of philosophy that is concerned with right and wrong, good and bad, virtue and vice. We will look at some central issues in the field as well as some of the main theories in it. Is an action good or bad because of its anticipated results or regardless of these results? Is relativism true? Does morality depend on God? Why should we be moral, after all? These would be some of the topics discussed.
