Comments
This course will engage some of the most pressing ethical issues of our time: privacy, narcissism, sexuality, reproductive rights, oppression, war and terror, euthanasia and health care, and our environment. Our aim will be to use philosophical theory to help develop real solutions for what seem to be insurmountable problems.
