Courses: Morality, Impartiality, & Friendship (PHILH359A01)

Fall 2009

Questions about friendship and love (or care) are of great importance to our understanding of human moral and social life. And friendship has recently become an important topic for moral philosophy, for, it is thought, a defensible moral theory must allow for friendships (and the partiality distinctive of them). In this course, we will consider questions both about friendship itself and about friendship and morality. Readings will be drawn from both classical and contemporary sources.
