PHL 216 - Freedom and Morality

This course examines the relationship between morality and various accounts of freedom, most notably freedom of the will.  The question of free will and the major positions in the free will debate are considered in light of the nature of moral reasoning, virtue ethics, utilitarianism, and deontology as they have been displayed in some of the most important texts of the moral tradition.  Particular emphasis is placed on the nature of the relationship between freedom and moral responsibility.
