Course: Ethics (PH-211-2) 

What are the reasons that people give for the moral choices that they make? Where did these reasons come from, what presuppositions are embedded in them, and how do you decide if they are justified? In this course, we will examine the ethical theories underlying the variety of positions that people adopt when confronting contemporary moral issues. This course will enable one to formulate and critically assess one's own stance with respect to concrete moral dilemmas, to critically evaluate the positions of others, and to understand the logic of ethical argumentation. P: Sophomore standing or permission of the instructor. General Education choice for Part B. Generally offered yearly. 3 credits
