This course surveys our modern views on ethics. We begin with an analysis of G.E.M. Anscombe’s essay on “Modern Moral Philosophy.” From there we derive the mechanics of deontological (primarily Kantianism) and teleological ethics (namely consequentialism and utilitarianism). These theories will logically and historically give rise to the re-birth of virtue ethics and its sentimentalist empathy and care derivatives.
