PHL 105 - Personal and Community Ethics (3 Cr.)

An introduction to ethical thought with particular attention given to the conflict between individual interest and communal good. 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 gender and sexuality, racism, economic injustice, and environmental ethics. In each case, we will examine how various conceptions of individual rights coincide with the obligations individuals owe to their neighbors, their nation, and the global community. Fall semester. DeCaroli.
