PHIL 5305 - Confronting Moral Controversy
CRN: 40228
Day and Time: F 12 - 2 p.m.
Instructor: Nicholas Smyth
Moral and political controversy is everywhere, but it can seem like it never gets anywhere.  Our society is deeply divided over certain controversial topics; for example, Abortion, Affirmative Action, Animal Rights, Free Speech, Pornography and Climate Change.  This course will ask students to confront these moral controversies, and it will focus primarily on developing three crucial skills.  First, students will learn to read and interpret influential articles by moral philosophers on these issues.  Second, students will develop the ability to argue productively about these controversial issues with other students who might not share their opinions. Third, each student will develop and defend a moral principle (or set of principles) that can justify their own particular moral views.  Students should leave the course better equipped to deal with moral and political controversy in their lives and careers.
