PHIL 152: Introduction to Moral Theory

 

Earn Arts and Humanities GEP as you enter the minds of Philosophers such as John Stuart Mill or Immanuel Kant and discover their moral inquiries:

What is right and wrong?

How should we live?

When is it right (if ever) to lie, kill other people, or eat animals?

Is the good of the group or the good of the individual more important?

Is there any right answer to such questions? If there are any right answers, upon what are they based, and how do we come to know them? PHIL 152: Introduction to Moral Theory covers various theoretical positions such as moral skepticism or relativism, Aristotelianism or virtue ethics, utilitarianism, Kantianism and other forms of non-consequentialism.
