Kant's Ethics

Garcia

Th 1:00-3:30
Along with virtue ethics (Aristotle) and utilitarianism (Bentham/Mill/Sidgwick), Kantian ethics is one of the three most influential ethical theories in Western philosophy. This course offers a general survey of Kant’s views as found in the Groundwork, 2nd Critique, Religion, and Metaphysics of Morals, and the secondary literature, including Allison, Guyer, Herman, Hill, Korsgaard, O’Neill, Paton, Rawls, and Wood.
Some topics to be discussed include Kant’s views about: (1) the ‘moral worth’ of actions; (2) dignity, respect, and treating persons as ‘ends in themselves’; (3) the relationship between happiness/welfare and morality; (4) moral psychology (e.g., the various ends of moral willing, weakness of will, and the nature of autonomy); (5) the relationship between ‘morality’ and ‘politics’ (Recht); and (6) debates between moral constructivism and moral realism in metaethics.
