The course:  In this course, we begin with the notion that our ethical principles and the opinions and actions they generate can and should be rationally justified. We will then explore and critique several competing systems of thought by which we might do so, particularly as regards the moral controversies that divide society today, such as abortion, the death penalty, affirmative action, sexism, war and peace. Our discussions will emphasize an analytical and critical discussion of those philosophical theories and competing viewpoints most popular in contemporary American culture.
