PHIL 2010 Diverse Approaches to Ethics

This course will critically engage the question of how people ought to act in a world where who defines ethical concepts will influence how we determine what people owe one another (as friends, as co-workers, as citizens). The course will approach ethics and ethical concepts (e.g., fairness, justice, equality) by examining moral theories that take as a starting point that ethics should be able to respond and guide actions in light of inequalities among groups and various dimensions of justice within social institutions. We will investigate diverse approaches to theory and ethics, such as those presented by feminist moral theory, feminist ethics, black feminist theory, intersectionality theory, and queer ethics.
