Ethics and Society

TRT2942HF L0101 SESSION: Fall 2019 INSTRUCTOR(S): Wiebe, Donald //testing here

COLLEGE: Trinity College SCHEDULE: Tue TIME: 9:00 to 11:00

CREDITS: One Credit

The primary goal of this course is to help us think critically and sensitively about Christian values, norms, and commitments in ways that preserve a Christian orientation while taking into account the non-Christian and pluralistic context of modern society. Such thinking will involve a dialectical process where universal principles, values, and norms will be examined with reference to the particular experiences and realities that constrain human action and interaction. The aim is not to structure a strict formalistic ethical framework but rather to canvall various ethical methodologies, religious and secular, as resources for ethical thinking and praxis.
