HUM2391 Morals II
Morality is provisionally described as those guidelines that tell us what is good or bad, right or wrong. They regulate our conduct. Ethics is hesitantly construed as the sensible explanation of our principled standards. These explanations will be clarified as the course advances. This course is an analytical investigation of the fundamental moral theories and their utilizations to modern moral concerns.
You will be more completely armed to evaluate circumstances which emerge within separate areas of your life. A scholarly plan will be studied in order to achieve this task. You will cultivate collective knowledge of morality that will span many professional lines, thus becoming advantageous to you even in business situations.
This course will delve into ethical principles and their social and political utilization to present-day issues. Ethical standards will also be related to moral predicaments in politics, law, business and the professions. Noteworthy ethical ideologies will be considered with specific innuendo to the issue of the neutrality of morality and to the affinity between moral acumen and rationalizing about other affairs. By the end of this course, all students should:
- Perceive, expound and analyze the prime ethical theories and describe these theories to current moral dilemmas
- Administer methods of rational scrutiny to ethical debates, and determine inconsistencies in those arguments
- Employ the moral problem-solving routines suggested by diverse moral philosophers and ethical customs to their own moral thinking
- Promote the capacity to investigate and scrutinize moral disputes and opinions, including one’s own viewpoint
- Manifest proficient English manuscript and strategic thinking skills honed in this class by the writing of analytical compositions
- Evolve skills at philosophical rationale and reasoning
- Endeavor to thoroughly examine and measure the debates with scholarly integrity and harmonize them with your views
