PHIL 114B — Topics in Ethical Theory

[ hum ]

Prerequisite: PHIL 1a, or PHIL 17a, or PHIL 23b. May be repeated for credit.

Is morality something we have reasons to obey regardless of our interests and desires, or do the reasons grow out of our interests and desires? Is the moral life always a personally satisfying life? Is morality a social invention or is it more deeply rooted in the nature of things? This course will address such questions. Usually offered every year.
