Ethics in the Real World: 82 Brief Essays on Things That Matter
We will read the title book by the influential philosopher Peter Singer. Typically, three or four pages long, the essays cover a wide range of human experience. A partial list of topics includes: happiness, sexuality, parenting, friendships, mortality, science, politics, world affairs, treatment of animals, bioethics and charity. We will discuss and debate these ideas, covering a few essays each week. They will challenge you and possibly change your views about real world questions. Gerald Lapidus will lead the first session and volunteers are expected to lead subsequent discussions. Please read the Big Questions section (p. 3-40) for the first class.
