Details

Why do ethical dilemmas exist? Are we doomed to ambiguity? What grounds humanist ethics? Each of us has faced ethical dilemmas where some of our ethical choices may be in radical conflict. How can we analyze our own and others ethical choices? Are there tools we can use to help us understand how we arrive at our choices? After examining modern ethical theory and the newer science of morality we will see if we can apply this knowledge to real world ethical dilemmas and humanist ethics.
