Current Moral Problems

This course presents a serious focus on classical ethical theories as underpinning for understanding current moral issues. Accordingly, we will deal with values, with the good and bad, with right and wrong, insofar as they apply to urgent issues in the contemporary world milieu. The issues that we will grapple with are: world poverty, the environment, euthanasia, abortion, sex, personal relationships, equality and discrimination, criminal rights, business ethics, crime and punishment, dirty politics, and war and peace. How are we to live our lives as moral human beings in dealing with these issues?
