    This course is an introduction to moral philosophy and provides a reasoably detailed examination of the central issues of moral philosophy: questions and theories about right and wrong, good and evil, and virtue and vice. The course will consider several historically important theoretical approaches to ethics: consequentialistic ethics, deontologocal ethics, natural ethics, virtue ethics, the ethics of care, and ethics of religion. Students will be challenged to present reasons for and against their moral judgements.
