Justice and Morality: What is the Right Thing To Do?
with Jeffrey Patten
Look to challenge your thoughts, values and decisions in your everyday lives. This course, inspired by the popular Harvard University course titled “JUSTICE,” is designed to introduce individuals to a higher-level cognitive/moral experience that will surely challenge your thoughts and beliefs. This mini-course strives to discuss and think about the proverbial question…. ”What is the right thing to do?” As our country splits on the political issues of the day, it is more important than ever to be able to understand why we believe what we do. This course does not promise to make you a better person, but it does promise to get you thinking about where you stand in the debate concerning this important question of political philosophy.
