Intermediate Ethics HPH201

This unit is being phased out, no new enrolments are being taken.


We are all constantly faced with moral questions, but what are the foundations of morality? On what grounds do we, should we, base our moral decisions? What is it that makes some actions right and others wrong? What is moral goodness? This unit studies different approaches to these questions and a select number of theories central to moral philosophy.
