Class Details

Throughout the history of Western philosophy, there have been debates concerning how human beings should live: What should we do both with our lives as wholes and in specific problematic situations? The debates have addressed us both as individuals and as members of political communities. This course aims to aid us in responding to these debates, and in living our lives, on the basis of reasoned conclusions rather than from unrecognized presuppositions. This course concentrates on some of the most influential ethical and political texts in Western philosophy: Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Mill, and others.
