PHIL 50.24 Moral Epistemology

Ethical disagreements range from the ethics of abortion to foundational questions about the basic structure of ethics (such as whether or not consequentialism is true). What is the significance of such disagreements for deciding what to believe in ethics? Do moral disagreements provide support for moral skepticism? How, if at all, can we make progress in ethical inquiry? Parallel questions, as they arise in other domains (e.g. mathematics, political philosophy, and epistemology itself) will be examined.

Prerequisite

Two Philosophy courses, or permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV

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.

Offered

Not offered in the period of 18F through 20S
