Course Overview

Together we will consider such questions as does life have meaning, what if any are our duties to non-human animals, and what is the purpose of morality anyway? The structure of sessions will be a mixture of lecture and spirited discussion. In essence we will be using the model and texts for Dr Delaney's very successful introduction to ethics taught over several years at the University of Notre Dame.
