Instructor: Matthew Strohl

Ethics is the attempt to answer some of the most fundamental questions of human existence: “What is the right thing to do? What does it mean to live a good life? How can we be enduringly happy?” In this course we will examine three of the most influential attempts in the western tradition to answer these questions by looking at the writings of Aristotle, Immanuel Kant, and J.S. Mill.

This course is a practical, hands-on introduction to ethics and moral philosophy, the branch of philosophy that concerns right conduct and how we ought to live. We will ask, “What role do ethics play in my daily life? How should I live? What choices should I make? What ethical values should guide my decision-making? What would it mean for me to live a good life?”
