Description: 

A practical and theoretical in-depth critical analysis of some of the most difficult contemporary ethical dilemmas humanity faces today. This course builds on the tools, skills, and insights gained in the introduction to Ethics courses. Students will engage in critical discussion and dialogue with their classmates, drawing on the wisdom of their own cultural and religious traditions. Students will gain crucial skills in dealing with ethical issues, and gain insight in the main themes and specific methodologies other religious traditions offer to the study of ethics. Particular attention will be paid to examining the ethical issues that arise in relation to human identity (class, race and ethnicity, dis/ability, gender and sexuality, etc.) as well as other critical contemporary ethical issues like Indigeneity, neo/colonialism, interfaith/interculturality, and food sovereignty.
