PHIL 114: Aristotle's Ethics (PHIL 214)

Aristotle's ethical theory is a primary source of later philosophical reflection on ethics, and on philosophy of mind and metaphysics in so far as they are related to ethics. For this reason it allows us to understand some of the motives and starting points of our own thought about ethics. Our main text will be the Nicomachean Ethics, supplemented by selections from other works of Aristotle. We will discuss some of the extensive philosophical literature on Aristotle's ethics, and on related topics in ethics.

PHIL 114A: Ancient Philosophical Methodologies (PHIL 214A)

In this course, we shall examine the philosophical methodologies that Plato, Aristotle, and the Hellenistics use and advocate. In Plato, we shall consider the elenchus and dialectic, in Aristotle dialectic and science. For the Stoics and Epicureans, we shall focus on the methodological differences that come to light in their epistemological disagreements and in their ethical and metaethical disagreements. For the skeptics, we shall consider whether they have a philosophical methodology at all.
