Message to Students
Welcome to Essential ETHICS!
Most people are sensible about behaviour and attitude. The task of ethics is simply to rectify conduct. Parents, teachers, maybe all of us attempt to teach ethics, yet, ethics is something that can be learnt, rather than taught. In this course we will survey a range of topics related to ethics as an essential driver for general, intellectual and scientific achievement. Together we will discuss ethically questionable behaviour, consumption, research, business, law etc., and learn from a variety of viewpoints.
This course will be conducted in English. The audience is any student concerned with « good » and « right ».
