Philosophy Class LIVE! – Week 13

Our next and final LIVE online meeting for PHIL 135 – Introduction to Ethics – is on Wednesday, 27 Apr 2016 at 11:00 noon (PT), right here and on Google+ Hangouts on Air. This week you have two articles on the topics of terrorism and torture. Next week you have two articles on the moral status of the environment. We will also discuss your final assignment – a research/analytical essay on a moral issue of your choice.

This is specifically for my Truckee Meadows Community College students, but everyone is welcome!
