Program Overview

Program Description:
Held between 7 July - 18 July, 2014 at Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, this course will examine two sets of questions. Most of the sessions will focus on various topics in applied philosophy. These will include some of the more well-known issues, e.g. abortion, punishment, animal ethics, ethics of war, the ethics of consumption, as well as some less well known topics in applied philosophy, e.g. the ethics of biohacking. On the introductory day we will focus on the meta-question, that is on the nature of applied philosophy. Issues related to the nature of applied philosophy will be raised throughout the course in connection with the various specific problems. By running the applied philosophy topics and the meta-questions in parallel the students will be encouraged to integrate their understanding of the two overarching questions of the course.
