Courses: Human Nature and the Ethical Life (PHILH115B01)

Spring 2010

What is an ethical life for humans? What values, motivations and actions are humans by nature inclined towards? How might one’s answer to the second question affect one’s answer to the first? These three questions together form a core problem in the history of ethics. In this class, we will address these three questions through close and critical reading of some classic texts of western ethics.
