Learning outcomes

Moral philosophy investigates the principles that either have guided or guide (or rather, “should guide”) human actions in history, be they the acts of individuals or the choices of society as a whole. Through the analysis of the most important ethical questions, especially those more directly affecting us, students are expected to acquire a good degree of critical awareness about the main subjects of moral philosophy, thus enabling them to deal with the main moral issues of our time.
