Philosophy has a long history of proposing, examining, discussing and criticizing moral action on both the individual and social level. This course will also explore what pathways have been explicated and explored to guide us in the endeavor to live good lives. The course looks at the ethical theories and ethical frameworks that have been proposed by some of the greatest thinkers and founders of religions to answer our basic moral questions. The breadth of moral theory over time and culture and geography is enormous. Many of the topics are controversial, ongoing and unresolved. This makes the course current and challenging.
