PHIL11-121: Cultural and Ethical Values

Description

How can we judge what is right, and what wrong? Is morality just a matter of personal opinion? From where does the state get its authority? Are there limits to that authority? In this subject, you will explore some of the most influential, and often competing, philosophical theories of ethics and society. You will do so by studying the theories of the most important thinkers in Western history: from Socrates to contemporary thinkers.
