Philosophical Ethics: An Introduction to Moral Philosophy


Philosophical Ethics: An Introduction to Moral Philosophy is a four-week live, online course that explores the nature of morality.

This course will help you better understand moral disagreements, and provide a more robust framework for answering life’s most important questions.

In this class, you’ll learn:

- Normative ethics: Theories of right and wrong.
- Meta-ethics: Whether those theories are objectively true, culturally relative, or something else entirely.
- Systematic philosophy: How to use philosophical tools to have more fruitful moral disagreements.
