Course Catalog


How ought we live? This course will help students develop their ability to answer this question by introducing them to three major ethical traditions: consequentialism, deontology, and virtue theory. We will use these theories to examine pressing issues about the path of our own lives, as well as the path of our society. Past topics have included: Are some careers more ethical than others? Is it ever wrong to bring children into the world? Are national borders unjust or are they a moral necessity?
