(GCR Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies area)
An introduction to ethical thought with particular attention given to the conflict between of individual interests and communal goods. The course includes a survey of classical writings on ethics as well as a selection of more recent texts that focus on concrete issues such as racism, economic injustice, and environmental ethics.
