PHIL 230 Introduction to Ethics

This course will address some fundamental questions in ethics such as: What is the best life for a human being? Should I be good? Can I be good? Is morality objective subjective or relative to one's society? Is there any relation between ethics and religion? What are our obligations to others both friends and strangers? What are our obligations to non-human animals? We will read both classical and contemporary writings in ethics.
