Instructor: Peter Bolland, Professor- Philosophy and Humanities Department Chair, Southwestern College
Ethics is the branch of philosophy that focuses on values, morality, and concepts of
justice. In this six-week course we will study the major ethical theories of the world’s
philosophical traditions immersing ourselves in an inquiry into the nature of justice,
virtue, and the good life. We will examine egoism, relativism, utilitarianism, deontology,
and a number of other prominent ethical perspectives by applying them to real-life
situations in our own lives as well as in the ethical dilemmas in the world around us.
