PHIL 104

Ethics and Justice


Description

This course explores and questions a range of views about how we should live on the personal, professional, social and global level.  

We will consider a range of topics such as friendship, career, other animals, poverty (local and global), tolerance and freedom, environmental ethics, punishment, obligations to future people and global justice. We will examine these topics in the light of philosophical theories about justice, liberty, rights and different approaches to ethics that emphasise roles, rules, virtues and consequences.

Students will be encouraged to form and argue for their own opinions about the issues explored, and will acquire and apply critical thinking skills.
