PHL 210 - Ethics


This course serves as an introduction to ethics, the branch of philosophy concerned with questions such as: What is the good? How should we live? What is correct or right action? The course will explore answers to these questions by focusing on three main ways of life or conceptions of the human good: 1) the life of pleasure, as articulated in various forms of utilitarianism, 2) the life of morality through Kant’s deontology or duty-based ethical theory, and 3) the life of virtue as in Aristotelian virtue ethics. In addition, we consider two alternatives or supplements to these three conceptions of the human good: the life of care and the life of wisdom. Course Codes: ABR. Prerequisite: PHL.Q*101.
