Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Ethics are the sine qua non of any happy life. A life lived in moral ignorance is a life poorly, and thus sadly, lived. Professor Mark LeBar not only makes the dry philosophies of Immanuel Kant and Adam Smith intelligible, but he also makes them interesting to discuss (which, if you are coming from a scientific background, is no easy feat).
I learned many concepts; but, above all, I learned what it means to be happy and how to morally pursue that happiness. Happiness and morality are most certainly the primary concepts discussed in this class, and I would not have it any other way. Not only were my personal opinions changed, but so too was my outlook on life.

Advice for students:
The most important thing you can do in this class is attend the class. The supplementary information posited in every lecture and discussion is incredibly useful (and borderline necessary) in obtaining a decent grade.
