Contemporary Moral Problems

PHIL 0190 S01 [CRN: 26184]

Is it ever morally permissible to get an abortion? Is euthanasia morally permissible? Can capital punishment be ethical? Do non-human animals have the same moral status as humans? Is it morally acceptable to keep more resources than one needs? These are examples of questions that contemporary applied ethics attempts to answer. In this introduction to contemporary moral problems, we will discuss potential answers provided by contemporary philosophers to these and other controversial questions.
