REL 11 Religion and Morality

How can we claim that something is good, evil, right, wrong, just, or unjust? What is our basis for evaluation and judgment, and how can we hope to persuade others who hold different perspectives? This course explores the challenges of making moral judgments and offering ethical codes of conduct. We consider problems raised in Western philosophical and religious traditions primarily. Topics covered include foundationalism and post-foundational ethics, narrative and virtue ethics, and traditional vs. postmodern approaches. Issues explored may include: poverty and injustice, just war theory, race/class/gender concerns, biomedical ethics, business ethics, post-humanism, and environmental and animal rights. Open to all classes.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
