“What makes actions right or wrong?  Are there objective standards of right and wrong or is what’s right or wrong culturally determined or a matter of opinion?  And more generally, what’s so important about being “moral” in the first place?  In this class, we’ll read a mix of historical and contemporary philosophers, with an eye to figuring out just what ethics/morality is supposed to be, whether it’s objective or subjective, and why (if at all) we should care about it.  The class will be discussion-based, and we’ll see whether we can all come out of the class more ethical/moral people than when we started.”
