PHIL 104. Introduction to Ethics

Ethics enquires into the fundamental perspectives and principles that bear on the evaluation of human conduct.  It examines prominent theories about what constitutes a good life, articulates relevant principles of right action, poses basic questions about the nature of morality and engages with various moral problems that confront the individual and society.  This course endeavors to acquaint students with traditions of moral inquiry and to equip them with key concepts by which to exercise their own moral reflection.
