Honors Ethics: Sex and the City
Tentatively scheduled for Spring, 2015

This course introduces the major ethical theories of the Western tradition by applying them to issues in human sexuality. Various philosophical and literary texts, film, and works of art that deal with the ethical aspects of sex and sexuality will provide opportunities to learn and practice philosophical analysis.

For an overview of the course, see this prospectus and a draft of the syllabus. For a more detailed discussion of the philosophical motivation for the course, click here.
