DPLS 750 Ldrshp & Post-Modern Ethics
3.00 credits
This course is an introduction to some of the various ways that the pursuit of an ethical life, a life lived well In the light of goodness and justice, has been inspired by "post-modernism." For our purposes, that means ethics pursued after the challenges posed to the autonomy of the subject and the absolute power of reason, challenges that become dominant in western thinking since the mid Twentieth Century. In particular, this means thinking about justice and goodness outside of the exclusive concern with rule-based ethics (Deontology and Utilitarianism) that marks the Enlightenment, or High Modernism.
