This unit will introduce students to the study of ethics and to some of the major debates that engage moral theory today. Such a reflection begins with the work of Aristotle who highlighted the importance of virtue in our ethical lives, and moves on to the theory of Natural Law which bases moral norms on human nature backed by divine command. We then study Hume, who stresses the moral sentiments as a basis for our norms, and Kant who based the notion of duty and the dignity of humankind on pure reason.
