PHI 220 - Ethics: Know Thyself

Ethics is the study of what there is most reason to do or want, which inevitably assumes an account of who one is and what it means to be excellent at being who one is. We examine past and present philosophical attempts to understand what is right, good, and just, with special emphasis on how these accounts relate to the nature of the self and the embodied pursuit of the good life. Contemporary ethical issues are analyzed in light of this understanding.
