Columbus Rationality

This week's topic: Duty and Ethics

This week we will be discussing Deontological or Duty Based Ethics. Specifically we will examine how Deontology is more than just following a list of rules. Also, the ways we all may use Deontology in our own lives and how Deontology has been used in modern history.

The workshop will be led by Caleb Pitkin, a longtime participant of HCCO's Columbus Rationality. He is currently pursuing a Master of Divinity Degree from the Methodist Theological School in Ohio. He is also a Candidate for the Ordained Ministry in the United Methodist Church. Don't worry, he won't be preaching.

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is some swearing and discussion of mature issues.
