Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
Goal 06 - Humanities/Fine Arts
  • Demonstrate awareness of the scope and variety of works in the arts and humanities.
  • Understand those works as expressions of individual and human values within an historical and social context.
  • Respond critically to works in the arts and humanities.
  • Articulate an informed personal reaction to works in the arts and humanities.

Description
When we say something is morally right or wrong, are we simply expressing our personal feelings or are we saying something more? Who gets to decide (and how do they decide) what makes something morally right or wrong? Do moral issues have answers about which we can be certain? Does morality have well-regarded theories like the physical sciences do--theories which help ethicists and others to decide what is right or wrong? These and other questions will be addressed in this decidedly theory-focused course in moral philosophy.
