PHI 345 - Social Ethics: From Personal Values to Global Citizenship
Prerequisite(s): Junior Standing required
The focus of this course is to engage course participants in moral deliberation about contemporary domestic and global issues that are pertinent to human development and well-being. Contemporary issues will be discussed in terms of ethical considerations including utility, duties, rights, virtues, justice as fairness, and care. Notions such as environmental integrity will also be important. This course will encourage students to develop positions they, as concerned citizens, ought to articulate on current important issues that cross disciplinary and geographical boundaries, and that require a knowledge of and sensitivity to cultural differences.
