Course Description

ONLINE: In this online course, we will be reading essays by ethicists who argue different sides of an important issue, like world hunger, immigration, pornography, animal welfare, abortion, and euthanasia. Most of our class time will be spent on open discussion of the essays. We will also look into the dominant theories philosophers hold about how moral decisions can reasonably be made. Our object will be to understand both sides of the issues and arrive at reasoned positions of our own. Weekly reading assignments will be about 15 pages. | Facilitated discussion.
