This course surveys Western ethical thinking from its roots in ancient Greek and Judeo-Christian thought through the modern era, and briefly considers some contemporary developments. Students develop an ethical question based on their own interests and use the readings of the course to formulate an answer to it in several short papers, culminating in a final paper pulling together those shorter papers. Main sources/authors include the Aristotle, the Christian Bible, Hobbes, Hume, Kant, Bentham, and Mill.
