This course covers classical and contemporary approaches to a few major philosophical questions about ethics: When we make a moral judgment, are we asserting something possibly true or false or just expressing our feelings? By what standard(s) can we decide what we ought to do? What makes for a good life? The ethics of particular issues such as climate change, abortion, and campus speech codes will be addressed along the way.
