Course Description

This course explores generational perspectives on today's ethical issues through an interactive approach. Ten Duke undergraduates partner with ten OLLI “overgrads” to lead discussions and to pursue and share perspectives on current issues. The emphasis of the course is to consider how your personal ethics are being formed and to fine-tune your own ethical code. Topics of social and civic interest with ethical grounding will be explored, guided by Socrates's inquiry: “How, then, shall we live?” Each week we explore an ethical issue from one of the following fields: health care: womb to tomb, how we eat, energy and climate, wealth and responsibility, technology and privacy, justice, social relationships, and lessons learned. Facilitated discussion; Active participation.
