Course Description: This course provides essential knowledge and reasoning skills in moral philosophy. Students examine a selection of writings from key figures in the tradition of moral philosophy, including HUME, KANT, and MILL, as well as selected 20th century moral philosophers, in terms of theory and practice (applied ethics). The course introduces some of the central topics, concepts, and methods of reasoning within contemporary moral philosophy, including the difference between consequentialist and deontological approaches to ethics, moral scepticism versus moral relativism, and the nature of moral reasoning. Students explore the role of concepts such as autonomy, freedom, and responsibility in moral thinking; the moral significance of human dignity and happiness; and the application of moral principles to particular issues. Applied ethics topics may include economic and environmental justice, disability, euthanasia, childhood, and abortion.
