This course introduces students to moral philosophy and its application to the real world. Its focus will be on the fundamental concepts of morality, as well as the methods of philosophical inquiry and major moral theories. Thus, it will introduce alternative understandings of moral reasoning, language, and practice, while also challenging students to use philosophical tools to help make sense of various concrete moral issues, such as the extent of our obligations to animals and to people in need and our rights to exercise control over our own lives and to be treated as equals.
