POLS 357 Ethics and Morality in Daily Life

Ethics and morality are usually either confined to realm of religion or taught, learned and discussed in the area of philosophy. However, in today's world, people are faced with ethical dilemmas and moral issues in many areas of daily life. The lines between ``good'' and ``evil'', and between ``right'' and ``wrong'' are becoming increasingly blurred, yet individuals are generally left without a guide for solving these issues. There is therefore a need to discuss such issues as part of the education of young people in every field. This course aims to equip students who are not students of philosophy with some basic philosophical approaches to ethics and morality in simplified form, and to encourage them to apply these approaches to some practical issues in politics, science, law and other aspects of social life. Credit units: 3 ECTS Credit units: 6.
