Cursusdoelen
The aim of this Topics Seminar is for the participating student (1) to gain a thorough understanding of the primary texts for the course and a familiarity with the current debates in the philosophical literature on this topic; (2) to appreciate the arguments for and against the positions; and (3) to develop an independent judgment about the most promising approach in this area.

 
Inhoud
This “Topics Seminar” explores in depth issues and texts in the area of ethical theory, including normative ethics, meta-ethics, and the foundations of moral judgment.

The topic of 21-22 is: Personal Identity and its Practical Implications

What does it mean to be a person? Is there a special quality that separates persons from nonpersons? What connects you in a special way with your past and future self? What significance do our views about personhood have when it comes to questions about moral philosophy? This course will be dedicated to exploring these questions. We will begin by looking at some early philosophical work that formed the basis of our contemporary ideas of personhood, before turning to some of the most important work in the 20th century. Finally, we will look at some recent debates in applied ethics which seem to hinge on the answers to these questions.
