Number Title Instructor Days/time Room
2 Individual Morality & Social Justice Pickering MTuWTh 10-12 182 Dwinelle

In this course we will raise a few of the central questions of moral and political philosophy. How should I live my life? What do I owe to others? What rules should we accept for living together? And, most fundamentally, should we think there are right and wrong answers to these questions? We will also explore canonical answers given to these questions. Historical authors discussed in this course may include Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Hume, Bentham, and Nietzsche, while more recent authors may include Bernard Williams, Judith Jarvis Thomson, John Rawls, and Robert Nozick.
