Spring 2017 Courses

Philosophy of the Human Person

Syllabus Person Spring 2017

Here are some sample videos from my Philosophy of the Human Person course:

Free will — definition

Free will — do we have it?

An argument for the soul: Peter Unger’s Problem of Too Many Thinkers


Syllabus Ethics Spring 2017

Some videos:

Natural law ethics

(note: the natural law video draws heavily on work by Mark Murphy and Charles Rice)


Kant on qualified versus unqualified goods

Kant on moral worth

(note: the material in the Kant videos is drawn largely from Russ Shafer-Landau’s The Fundamentals of Ethics and from my colleague Joshua Stuchlik)
