Exploring Ethical Dilemmas

Each of us has to wrestle with a wide range of ethical questions in our lives. Some of these questions are personal: Should I cheat? Should I keep my promise? Is it ever acceptable to lie? Some of these questions are about broader values and policies in society: Should we allow stem cell research? What responsibility do we have to help the poor? Should capital punishment be practiced? This course examines frameworks for approaching these kinds of questions and encourages students to investigate moral issues using research and reasoning, developing their own responses, and defending them articulately.
