Course Description

This course will introduce the students to basic concepts and theories of ethics. It will begin by asking the enduring question of philosophy what is the meaning of life? And what if there is no meaning to life? Or if the meaning of life is found and if the found meaning of life is absurd, then is it possible to call life as an absurd? So in this course, asking these questions, we will be studying, formulating, comparing and contrasting arguments and views regarding different aspects of ethics. We will be systematically thinking about what is ethics? Is ethics a matter of asking what is good life and right action? Or what is that makes life good and right? Another way of thinking about ethics is in terms of the moral laws people support? How do we know which those moral laws right or wrong? What is that makes acts as right and wrong? What sort of ethical person should one strive to be? In this course, we will join a long tradition of philosophical ethics in examining these different questions and seeking answers to them.
