Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Technology is changing at such a rapid rate, and clearly our laws are terrible at keeping up, so how can we decide on right/wrong actions? Ethics. And this class goes into what makes an ethical system valid, then uses those systems to evaluate advances in technology and how their use is ethical or unethical.
I learned there will always be that one person that never agrees with you on anything and how I should go about dealing with them. I learned about some of the history of the tech we use today. I learned how to create a logical, step-by-step argument to try and convince an open minded, reasonable person why I am right.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
Do the reading in the week or week-and-a-half leading up to the test. The test questions are on specifics of the reading (i.e. Brave New World was discussed a bit in one reading- "In what year was BNW published?") In class, learn to speak your mind no matter who is with or against you and learn to hold your ground- unless you are just wrong.
