Course Description:

Discussion of ethical topics often lead either to affirmation of what both parties already believe, or arguments that become unpleasant, leading nowhere. Is this because ethics is “just a matter of opinion” and therefore a rational discussion is impossible? Hardly. Most people believe that certain ideas, actions, norms, and values are morally superior to others. It isn’t just a matter of opinion. Rape is wrong; slavery is wrong; murder and stealing are wrong. How do we know this? Since Classical times, ethical philosophers have shared their ideas about what the guiding principles of ethics might be. Join us as we study the writings of several of the great ethical philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and J.S. Mill. We will apply their ideas as tools in our own discussions of contemporary ethical questions that will challenge our own beliefs and prove fruitful in the conclusions we reach.
