Instructor: Michael Prinzing. This course meets TR 8:00 – 9:15 a.m. in GA 007.

In this course we will examine a range of ethical issues that people such as ourselves must confront in our ordinary lives. For instance: How much, if any, of your income should you give to charity? What, if anything, should you be doing about climate change? Is it wrong to eat meat? Is it wrong to buy from companies with questionable business practices? A primary objective for this class is to help students become better at having productive conversations about difficult and fraught ethical problems. Students will be expected to develop their own views and to reassess these views in light of reflection and conversation.
