Ethics: Values & Choices

Fall 2019

Taught By: Timothy Quigley

Section: A

CRN: 7119

Credits: 3

Ethical questions arise every day of our lives. We are often frustrated and discouraged because ethics is not a science and even philosophical opinions vary. Skepticism, relativism and extreme individualism get in the way of achieving moral certainty. And yet we continue to search for what is honest, just, and good. To get a sense for many of the ways one confronts moral questions, we will read Western philosophers going all the way back to the ancient Greeks and coming forward into the modern world. To begin with we will learn to think philosophically about moral problems that perplex us today. We will experiment with some of the concepts and theories, applying them to case studies and everyday problems.
