Additional Details:

Topic: A Recent History of Moral Perception. How do we come to grasp moral facts? Many philosophers claim that we do so either through abstract thought (e.g., Kant) or through inner feelings (e.g., Hume). A few philosophers, however, have explored a third option: that we grasp morality through perception. This course will explore moral perception views as found in Anne Conway, Thomas Reid, Arthur Schopenhauer, Iris Murdoch, and several more recent authors.

TEXTS: No Textbook Required – course materials will be available on Canvas.
