Who counts, morally speaking? What should we do about injustice? Do we have moral obligations to people who no longer exist, or who do not yet exist? If so, why? And do we have certain rights against them? This course aims to provide you with the skills to (i) apply philosophical theories to a wide range of contemporary moral issues; (ii) formulate and defend competing positions on these issues; and (iii) evaluate the broader debate. Beyond this, it hopes to make you a better reader and writer of philosophy in general.
