PHIL 121 - Philosophy & Morality

Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU

This course introduces the discipline and practice of philosophy within the context of ethical inquiry. We begin by considering the question, ?Where does morality come from?? Issues include the connection between morality and God and whether morality is relative. We then ask, ?What makes a life go well?? Is the good life a matter of just being happy or is there more to it? We then move to theories of morality, which work to settle which actions are right and wrong. Finally, we end by considering ethical disputes. Possible topics include abortion, euthanasia, affirmative action, and the treatment of animals.
