Instructor: Daniel Muñoz. This course meets W 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. in CW 213.

This course will be an introduction to four major topics in normative ethics: incommensurability, aggregation, supererogation, and duties to self. For each topic, we begin with a classic paper and continue on to recent or forthcoming work. The goal is to get students to the point where they can understand and even contribute to contemporary debates in the field. In that spirit, the final assignment is not the typical full-length paper, but a shorter paper suitable for submitting to a conference.


PHIL graduate students: Please refer to our Handbook (page 6, #9) for information regarding distribution requirements.

Permission of the instructor is required to enroll in this course. PHIL grad students are exempt from this enrollment requirement.
