Introduction to Ethics - This course provides an introduction to ethics by way of a discussion of theories and argument in two central areas of moral philosophy: The Normative Ethics of Behavior and Value Theory. Other topics in moral philosophy are discussed along the way. In every case the focus is on careful formulations of theories and arguments. The goals are: to understand the theories and arguments; to develop the ability to evaluate the theories and arguments; and to develop the ability to extract well-formulated, interesting arguments from serious philosophical texts
