Advanced Ethics (PHIL*4340)

Term: Winter 2014


Anglo-American philosophy has just begun to recognize the important of society in our philosophizing (e.g. the social turn in epistemology, Rawls' focus on institutions, Kuhn and social studies of science). But Hegel was already criticizing the atomistic individual and its model of society in the early 19th century. In this course, we will work through his Elements of the Philosophy of Right, which covers ethics, social philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of law, and international relations. To give us a common background, we will begin with two short books on Hegel by Singer and Taylor.
