SUB-HONOURS COURSE: CONTROVERSIAL QUESTIONS
HONOURS COURSE: CONTEMPORARY TOPICS
A team taught course in which we examine questions such as: Is eating animals immoral? Is being a good or bad person a matter of luck? Should anyone be able to set limits on what you can do with your own body, even if it's ‘for your own good’? Should everyone be allowed to state their mind, even if their views are harmful or offensive? Do you have a moral obligation to help those worse-off? Are you unknowingly biased against underprivileged groups?
This team-taught course is designed to expose students to topics of contemporary research interest. Each lecturer will teach 3-4 weeks of the course on topics related to their current research. The general theme of the course for this academic year is: Human and Non-Human Minds. Students will choose to write assessments from this broad spectrum of topics.
