PHH4121: Ancient Greek Ethics 3
Prerequisite:  One course in Philosophy other than Foreign Culture. In this course we will study the origins of Western ethical thought in ancient Greece. Beginning with Aristotle, we will go on to examine the work of the Hellenistic philosophers, who more fully developed several distinctive schools of ethical thought and behavior. While these philosophers are interesting in themselves, they are also important because they formulated the basis of contemporary ethics, both in the questions asked and in the solutions offered.
