課程概述 Course Description

This course has three foci: First, to develop each participant's skills in constructing her/his own ethical perspective in their decision making; Second, to introduce some of the important theoretical discourses and methodologies in ethics; And thirdly, to help develop a sensitivity towards current debates, including issues of economic justice, globalization, gender equality and environmental protection, and the creation of communities of justice and peace. We shall attempt to locate alternative models of social and community living to counter the values of hatred, alienation, and loss of meaning in life. The first six weeks will be devoted to the study of the theoretical discourse in ethics, while the latter part of the class devoted to the evaluation of the contemporary issues from an ethical perspective.
