This course covers some of the main threats to doctrines and ideas of moral philosophy, including nihilism, relativism, egoism, utilitarianism, the categorical imperative, virtue, and the social contract. Rather than keeping these as pure theoretical constructs, these ideas will be applied to real life, practical situations, such as those involving ethics in the workplace, and important current debates. Meets the humanities requirement.
