This course is divided into three broad parts.
The first is an exploration of the conditions under which we make choices of any kind. In particular, we examine what is (metaphysically) required for free and responsible choices.
In the second, we look at some empirical data concerning our ability to choose autonomously and wisely and draw out is philosophical implications.
In the third, we tackle a small number of applied ethical problems and consider the kinds of personal choices we should make as ethical beings.
