PHI 229 Ethics: Contemporary Views & Challenges

3 s. hrs. This course will survey ethical theories as a prelude to discussion of current ethical and moral issues in society. The aim is to understand the twin biblical principles of being “In the world and not of it” (Jn 17:11-16) and of being “all things to all men” (1 Cor 9:19-23). Through philosophic and cultural analysis, we will struggle with the challenge of being relevant to and understandable by our contemporaries without compromising the Gospel.
