Why be Moral? An Introduction to Moral Philosophy
Sat, 9 February 2019
Making moral decisions, working out what is good or bad, right or wrong is a central part of what makes us human. But how do we, or how should we, make such decisions? What makes some things right and others unacceptable or wrong? In this study day we will examine the philosophical underpinnings of our moral thought. We will look at the Utilitarians, at Immanuel Kant and others, see what answers they put forward and critically assess those answers through discussion and close analysis of their texts. The day will act as an introduction to the field of moral philosophy, and give us a chance to get to grips with some of its key figures.
