VIC166H1S
Common Vices and Neglected Virtues: Intro to Ethics of Character
Professor Paul Gooch
T 2-4

Vice is popular: a prestigious university press has brought out a series of seven books on the Seven Deadly Sins. This course examines such questions as the following. Are greed, lust and gluttony just bad names for necessary and otherwise acceptable instincts? What is the place, in a good human life, of such qualities as honesty, trust, civility and the like? Are vices and virtues culturally determined or a matter of individual preference? Can character be taught, or is it rather a matter of genes and luck?  Not eligible for CR/NCR option.
