PHIL 153 - Ethics

(3 credits)
This course is a survey of the central issues and major theories in the philosophical study of morality. We will consider topics such as: What are values? What makes right acts right? Why be moral? What matters more, principles or consequences? What is virtue? Are there objective moral standards? How are morality, custom and religion connected? What is justice? What is the good life? Classical and contemporary readings will be used to familiarize students with these issues. Offered annually. (CHUM)
