INST 2209 - Contemporary Moral Problems

Hours: 3
Uses the tools of philosophy to address contemporary moral problems. Though the particular problems might vary term to term, among the topics that are frequently discussed are: What are our obligations toward animals? Are practices like euthanasia and abortion morally acceptable? Are there such things as just wars? Do businesses have any ethical obligations, and, if so, what are they? Other topics to be discussed include poverty, racism, feminism, and the moral quandaries posed by emerging medical technologies.
