TRN171Y1: Ethics and the Public Sphere

Hours

48S

What does it mean to be morally required to do something? What rights do we have over ourselves, our bodies, our privacy, our choices? In this course, we will read texts from philosophy, history, political science, cultural studies and beyond that engage with the theme of ethics in the public arena. These will provide valuable analytic tools as we go on to confront contemporary issues that raise urgent ethical questions. Restricted to first-year students admitted to the Trinity One Program. Not eligible for CR/NCR option.
