Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course provided an opportunity to discuss ancient and modern paramounts in philosophy that influenced morality over time. I learned so much about moral theory and ethics in general. I also improved my skills in analyzing philosophical works and in writing my own.
In this course I learned about many renowned philosophers and their influences on ethics. I learned about philosophers from the hellenistic period (Aristotle, Plato, Epicurus,) about more modern philosophers (Phillipa Foot, Peter Singer,) and about many in between. I learned about the where our moral principles were derived from, and learned how to acquire many different perspectives in order to make personal inquiries on ethics.

Advice for students:
KEEP UP WITH THE READINGS! Some philosophical works may be hard to understand and therefore may seem difficult to stay engaged with. Something that helped me in understanding the works was to summarize what I was reading as I was reading, and to use secondary sources to explain concepts I may not have fully understood.
