Section Information for Spring 2023

What is right and what is wrong? What should we do? Who should we be? Are we responsible for what we do and who we are? In this course, we will look at how we should ask these questions and how we should answer them. We begin the course by considering the possibility of systematic morality, before looking at three main types of moral theories: deontology, consequentialism, and virtue ethics.  We will then turn to various debates in applied ethics. We conclude the course by discussing moral responsibility.

PHIL 151 001 enrollment is controlled. Please contact the instructor to register.
