What’s it all about?
We all want to be ‘good’, but what does it mean? The question of how to be good has been one of the most challenging questions for mankind to answer. It has been debated by philosophers, atheists and all of the world’s religions since time immemorial.
What will we cover?
How can we tell right from wrong? What guides us in our desire to be ‘good’? This class will examine how different philosophies have evolved over time to help us know the difference between right and wrong and the variety of beliefs around the ideas of ‘good’ and ‘bad’.
There will be many opportunities for discussion and debate around a range of ethical questions.
