Moderator: Dr. Anne Klaeysen, Leader

From the moment we awaken in the morning until we tumble into bed at night, we are faced with challenges and opportunities to behave ethically. We may have time to consider the consequences of our response to a situation or need to make an immediate choice. In either case, we rely upon our values and experience. In these sessions, we will discuss essays from acclaimed writers and apply them to our own lives, sharing our collective wisdom with one another.

Readings are selected essays from Modern Ethics in 77 Arguments edited by Peter Catapano and Simon Critchley. See Maggie Determann, room 501.
