PHIL 5538 Seminar in Ethical Theory: 3 semester hours

Prerequisites: Graduate standing or consent of the instructor. In this course we will seek to answer questions from normative ethics or methaethics, which may include: What do all morally wrong actions have in common? What does the word "wrong" mean? How, if at all, can we verify moral judgements? Are any moral judgements valid for all societies? Do we always have good reason to be moral?.
