This course will investigate the ethical dimensions of several issues in social policy and individual conduct. The questions we ask will likely include the following. Is abortion ever morally permissible? Can patriotism be morally justified? What is racism, and what makes it wrong? Does thinking in terms of race even make sense? Should we get rid of racial thought and discourse?
