Courses: Love, Friendship, and the Ethical Life (PHILH105B01)

Spring 2013

This course examines the role given to love and friendship within an ethical life according to four dominant Western theories: virtue ethics, deontological ethics, utilitarian ethics, and the ethics of care. We will also look at the role played by love and friendship in Confucian ethics, an ethics that has affinities with virtue ethics and the ethics of care.
