In this course you will consider some of the most pressing practical ethical issues faced by society and by individual people in their everyday lives. We will analyse the ethical arguments behind issues such as (but not limited to): climate change, international aid, the market, new technologies or disability. The course will introduce you to key concepts in ethics such as responsibility, justice and well-being. You will be encouraged to examine your own ethical beliefs in the light of these concepts and consider the role that ethics can play in everyday life.
