This course will involve in-depth study of the Aristotelian approach to moral philosophy. We will begin with a study of the general Aristotelian approach to nature through writings by Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas, and then delve deeply into their ethical writings. We will conclude with some neo-Aristotelian and neo-Thomist ethical theory. Evaluation will be based on short writings, presentations, and a research paper.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
