Instructor: Pavel Nitchovski. This course meets MWF 8:00 – 8:50 a.m. in CW 105.

In this class we’ll look at the attempts to answer some of the most interesting philosophical questions: what does it mean to lead a good life? What does it take to be a good person? Why be moral at all?

We’ll engage with these questions by reading classical as well as contemporary texts including (but not limited to) works by Plato, Aristotle, Mill, Kant, and Ross.
