Section Information for Spring 2024

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. You will be evaluated based
on your ability to articulate and critique arguments from the readings, through participation in-class
discussion, three response papers, one critical essay, and performance on midterm and final exams.
