PHI 275 - Introduction to Ethics


3 Credit Hours

This course is an introduction to the major questions raised and theories asserted by philosophers on ethical issues such as the nature of good and evil, right and wrong action, the definition of a “virtuous” life, as well as distinctions between concepts such as right and good, and relative and absolute values. The course is primarily theoretical (emphasis on aims, structure, development, and evaluation of moral theory), with some applications to practical ethics (issue-oriented, in-class discussion when the use of practical examples is helpful to explain a point of moral theory). Students will become familiar with the specialized language, processes, and skills needed to understand and practice the discipline of ethical thinking.

Prerequisite(s): COM 121  or COM 122
