PHIL 37 Ethical Theory

This course is broadly concerned with questions about what is right, good and virtuous.  Some instances of the course will treat abstract questions.  For example: Are moral principles universal or relative to a particular group? Is an act right just in case it maximizes happiness? Do we have good reason to be moral? More focused instances might include: Do we have duties to non-humans? When is it morally permissible to kill a person?




One Philosophy course, or permission of the instructor.

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.
