PHI 014 - (HP) Introduction to Ethics

Semester Hours: 3-4
Fall, Spring
This course focuses on critical reasoning about ethics. The course reviews major approaches to ethical values and examines the bases for why some conduct (like killing, deceit, fraud) is wrong, and why some things (like freedom, fairness, compassion) are valuable. The course also examines the relationship between ethics and society, with focus on contemporary issues such as: ethics in professional or business contexts, health and medical contexts, ethics in personal relationships, environmental ethics or other similar topics. Students learn to reason critically about ethics through exercises and writing essays about ethical issues.
