In contemporary life, we are faced with many questions that have moral dimensions, only some of which may be obvious to us. In this course, we will delve into the moral dimensions of a range of contemporary issues, including affirmative action, freedom of expression, abortion, recreational drug use, poverty, civil disobedience, and the treatment of animals. In the process, we will also be examining different conceptions of morality and justice, and the presuppositions about human nature, society, and value that underlie them. Throughout the course, we will be concerned with issues of race and gender and how these categories interplay with the moral issues that we grapple with in contemporary society.
