Description:

This OpenCourseWare offering from MIT begins fittingly, with an architectural detail of Libra the Scales from the Autun Cathedral in France. This course was originally taught in the fall of 2009 by Professor Julia Markovits, and the course is a seminar on "classic and contemporary work on central topics in ethics." Some of the questions addressed by these materials include "What makes our actions right or wrong?" and "What is virtue?" Visitors to the site will find the course syllabus, readings, lecture notes, and some assignments. The lecture notes include sessions on moral explanations, moral judgments, and utilitarianism. Also, visitors can look over the reading lists and offer their own feedback on the course.
