PHI 301 Moral Philosophy


An examination of classical and contemporary theories in moral philosophy. Attention will be given both to metaethical issues (such as the question of whether there is an objective moral order and the question of the relation of God to ethics) and to historically important normative ethical theories (such as Kantian ethics, utilitarianism, and virtue theory). The course will also focus on the distinctives of Christian ethics from a philosophical perspective. Finally, some consideration will be given to application of moral norms in the context of one or two moral issues of contemporary importance. Prerequisite(s): PHI 101  or permission from the instructor. 3 hour(s).
