We’re All Just One Big, Happy Family…or Are We? Families across Literature

We will also slip in some poetry and philosophical and sociological explorations of the changing meaning of family. This course will give you five humanities credits toward your AA degree.

course PHIL 130

Morally Right or Wrong...and Why?

Some actions strike us as morally right and others as morally wrong, but why? Is it purely arbitrary on our part, or are there correct moral standards that can be applied? And if there are correct moral standards, where do they come from—God, society, the individual, human nature? Or could correct moral standards simply exist on their own in the same way that mathematical truths seem to exist on their own? This course will explore different accounts of the basis of morality in an attempt to find solutions to various moral problems involving capital punishment, economic justice wealth, discrimination, abortion, and animal rights.
