Phl 308U Elementary Ethics

General introduction to ethical theory. Attention will be given to such questions as whether there are objective moral distinctions, what makes right acts right and wrong acts wrong, and how we know (if we do) that actions are right or wrong. Among the theories to be considered are relativism, egoism, utilitarianism, and Kantianism.
