Introduction to Ethics

PHIL 202
3 CR

Ethics is the philosophic study of moral values. These questions will be explored: What makes actions right or wrong? Can moral beliefs or values be proven or evaluated? What values of life should we strive for? Should we blame or punish people for their actions? Can rights be defined or justified? And is individual liberty more important than collective authority or societal needs? Practical applications to medicine, law, business, and world affairs will be made. Humanities credit.
