Social Ethics: Contemporary Issues

3.00 credit hours

The course draws upon intellectual ancestors and current thinkers in moral philosophy and ethics to assist each student in identifying, analyzing, and discussing social and ethical questions pertaining to the definition and purpose of contemporary life, the need for moral coherence, and the meaning of life in a global society. The unifying theme of the course is Tolstoy's question, How then shall we live? The course does not seek to provide answers to the great questions of life. Rather, it tries to expand each student's capacity to grapple with such questions.
