This unit consists of three modules. The first is a philosophical exploration of the concept of love in its various forms: romantic love, family love, friendship, and divine love. Our focus will be on romantic love. The second module explores sexuality, its place in a well-lived life, and the moral concepts that have grown up around it. Related social issues such as pornography and homosexuality are also discussed. We will also debate same-sex marriage. The third module explores death as an existential issue for the living of life, medical definitions of death and ethical issues related to killing such as abortion and euthanasia. The notion of life after death is also explored.
