A Few Big Assignments
Great Intro to the Subject
This class was tough.
Philosophy and current issues not only teaches the fundamentals of ethics, but provides an opportunity for you to teach yourself how to be a better person morally and ethically.
My favorite parts were the Friday recitations. I enjoyed learning about Kantianism and Utilitarianism and the essays were also pretty enjoyable. I learned how to tell the difference between what is moral and immoral, how different philosophers had different opinions on different subjects, and how to provide evidence for my personal beliefs.
