Instructor: Geoffrey Sayre-McCord. This course meets M 3:00 – 5:30 p.m. via remote synchronous (RS) instruction.

On the Grand Scale of Advanced Courses (which ranges from ‘general survey’ at one end to ‘narrowly focused research seminar’ on the other) Contemporary Moral Theory will lean heavily towards the general survey end. The central objective of the course is to give participants a working acquaintance with a reasonable chunk of the most important work that has been done in moral theory during the twentieth century and this first part of the twenty-first century.
