Moral philosophy investigates on the principles that either have guided or guide (or should guide) human actions in history, individually as well as socially. Through the analysis of topical stages in the history of ethics, the course aims to make the participants acquire a good degree of critical awareness about moral philosophy’s main subjects, and the most important moral problems of our time.
Ethics of the development.
The course is two-folded. In its first part, the main subjects of contemporary moral reflection will be addressed with a constant reference to their historical background. In the second part, we will focus on the enormously relevant topic of the environmental crisis, and in particular on the various interpretations of the notion of “development”, seen precisely as that crisis’ main cause.
Texts of the course:
D. Neri, Filosofia morale, Guerini;
H. Jonas, Sull’orlo dell’abisso, Einaudi;
AA.VV., Obiettivo decrescita, EMI.
Students will undergo a written examination with open-answer questions.
