GOD, ETHICS & JUSTICE
In this course, the student is introduced to philosophy through a series
of shorter philosophical excerpts from a variety of authors and periods.
The focus will be on three issues: whether a divine being exists, how to
understand the nature of ethical standards, and what constitutes
political justice. The goal throughout is to develop skills of critical
analysis and self-expression, while coming to understand some of our
culture's most influential thinkers. Students may register for no more
than 6 hours at the 1000-level.
