This course delves into the processes we use to reach ethical judgments, particularly concerning professional and public issues. What factors influence our judgments? Are there blind spots in our thinking? Is it possible to come to recognize and compensate for these? We will grapple with such questions through use of case studies drawn from today’s headlines.
