A Framework for Making Ethical Decisions |Course Syllabi |Resources
Making Choices was created with the support of a National Science Foundation grant. The central premise of our work recognizes the cultural “situatedness” of making ethical choices. The curriculum we have developed places its emphasis upon the global and cross-cultural contexts for ethical decision-making. It examines ethics across a very broad range of situations, using the perspectives of social science, humanities and the sciences. The course has been developed and taught in a highly collaborative way, involving researchers at Zhejiang University, the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay and Brown University.
