Course Description for Ethics

PHI3601: Ethics
Ethics considers questions such as "How should I live?" and "How do I decide the right thing to do and why should I do it?" This course deals with those questions in the areas of moral metaphysics, meta-ethics and normative theories of moral conduct which come from the history of philosophy back to the time of Plato and Aristotle. Other theorists to be discussed include Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill, and may include figures such as Thomas Hobbes, David Hume and John Dewey, as well as contemporary theorists.
