INST 2203 - Ethics in a Global Context

Hours: 4
The class focuses on different ways of thinking about cross-cultural ethical conflict. Specifically, we will look at relativist and cosmopolitan alternatives to understanding the nature of cross-cultural, moral disagreements. We will also discuss ethical questions that arise due to increased global economic interdependence and consider issues of environmental ethics within an international context, including questions related to population growth and global environmental degradation.
