|Introduction to Ethics and Values - 85280 - PHIL 133 - 61|
Introduces students to value theory by exploring fundamental problems about morality, justice, beauty, and the problems posed by the purported relativity of value to personal taste and cultural context. Will include topics such as what makes a society just, whether we have any moral obligations, and whether humour is objective. Essay writing is an integral part of this course. In their essays students are expected to demonstrate an understanding of major philosophical questions, define key terms, mount arguments for and respond to arguments against, positions on philosophical issues, develop research and argumentation skills, and improve their command of written English. Students are encouraged to make use of the Philosophy Department's Essay Clinic.
Note: Students with credit for PHIL 110 may not take this course for credit.
