OverviewThe aim of this course is to introduce the fundamental moral theories and standards and to encourage their application - through mechanisms of moral reflection and judgment - to ethical problems arising throughout the world. The course is articulated through a large number and variety of studies of moral cases drawn from various parts of the world which will bring the student to confront prescriptive moral theories with some degree of sophistication. Our study of such matters as the French legislation against veils in schools, reproductive rights in Italy, U.S. drug laws and Iranian censorship vs. the value of liberty-will inevitably result in meta-ethical reflections, that is, thinking about the nature of morality and the limits of our moral judgment. The students' participation in class discussion is a fundamental element of this class.
