How can we judge what is right and wrong? Can morals be objectively true? What frameworks exist for dealing with moral judgement in a consistent way? Is morality itself inconsistent or self-defeating? This class won't give you the answers to these questions, but rather teach you how to find the answers for yourself. There will be lots of opportunity for discussion and debate within the group, and you will be encouraged to share your own views and opinions on a number of ethical topics.

Bring one of the following:
A piece of history
Ceramic plate
Reusable water bottle
Short-term loan of a bike
The best story I'll ever hear
