In this course, students explore the ethical questions that have engaged humankind from antiquity to the present. Such questions focus on life's ideals: How should I live? What is the good life? Questions also examine models for relating to others: Why should I care about or be just towards others? Do we need friendship, love, community, and justice? What are social relations? Students critically interpret and evaluate philosophical texts, positions, and arguments as they reflect upon the diverse cultural and sociopolitical environments in which these questions have been explored throughout history.
