Introduction to Ethics


This course is an introduction to ethics, in particular, Virtue Ethics, which is important to our American political tradition. Leaders in our country have understood that, for a people to be free, they must be virtuous. In this course, we will examine what that means. We will concentrate on the four Cardinal virtues, which are Prudence, Courage, Temperance, and Justice. The course consists of 12 lessons, viewable individually or as a full course.
