Taught at Marist College by Gregory Sadler, this course on Ethics starts “with discussing Emotivism and contrasting it with a Natural Law and Virtue Ethics Perspective, then move[s] into Virtue Ethics, Egoism, Might Makes Right, and Contractarian moral theory as depicted in Plato’s dialogues. After that we discuss ancient Hedonist and Stoic theories, then move into Utilitarianism with Bentham and Mill, followed by Deontology with Kant and Ross. Ethics of Care follows, as well as a return to Virtue Ethics with in-depth study of Aristotle, finishing with study of Thomas Aquinas’ Natural Law moral theory.”
