Additional Course Details: 

Why are some people “good”, and others “evil”?  Can a person be “good” in some situations, and “evil” in others? Who decides what it means to be “good” or “evil”? Does it even matter?

In this course, we will investigate the origin, purpose and impact of morality (good vs. evil) on human experience. Students will explore the development of morality in the evolution of the human race, and question the intersection of morality with biology, religion, politics, social values, and family structures from a multicultural perspective.

We will tackle questions such as whether morality is good for society, whether it is possible to have personal definitions of good and evil, and when evil behavior might be justified. Students will be given the tools judge whether historic people and events they participated in were moral or immoral, investigate morality as a philosophical concept, and use morality theory to determine when immoral acts are more or less reasonable.
