Description: This course deals with fundamental questions of value and morality-questions such as: What sort of life is best? What kind of person is it best to be? What does morality require of us? It also deals with important second-order questions about these fundamental questions- for example: Can morality be justified? How can we know what's right or good? Is there moral truth? What is the relation between morality and self-interest? Readings are drawn from both classical and contemporary sources. Previously offered as PHIL 306. Mutually exclusive with PHIL 306, credit cannot be earned for both classes. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for PHIL 360 if student has credit for PHIL 306.
