Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course focuses on the morals of society and how people of different value systems evaluate what is considered ethically moral or unmoral. I am pursing a career in wildlife law enforcement and thought this would be an interesting class and give me insight on how people justify their actions. You explore several different moral theories from Utilitarianism to Buddhism. This course challenges what you believe to be ethical, and at times can be a bit uncomfortable. It helped me grow and opened my eyes to the views of others.
I learned a lot about other was of thinking and evaluating morals. Philosophy is challenging material, and you need to take the time to understand the maxims and ideas behind each moral theory. The highlights were the discussions that took place in class. We had the chance to discuss different scenarios and learned how to evaluate them using different moral theories.
