### PHL 312 • Introduction To Logic

######
41445-41455 •
Fall 2015

Meets
MW 1000am-1100am PAR 203

show description
This is a course in the basic principles of logic. The student will come out of this course with an understanding of deductive inference and of argument generally, as wells as the notions of logical consequence, validity, soundness, and logical truth. Specifically, we will be looking at sentential logic (which treats the inferential relations among simple sentences) and predicate logic. Predicate logic is distinguished from sentential logic by its use of quantifiers.

### PHL 318 • Introduction To Ethics

######
41545-41555 •
Fall 2015

Meets
MW 1100am-1200pm PAR 203

show description
This is a course on moral reasoning in theory and practice. We will first explore normative theories concerning questions such as ‘what is a good life’, ‘what makes our actions right or wrong’, ‘what we owe to other people’, etc. Then we will focus on ethical issues that arise in public debate. Topics include: abortion, physician-assisted suicide, sexual morality and world poverty. Students will be exposed to opposing positions and they are expected to form their own opinions that are informed by the ethical theories they learn in this course.

* This course satisfies the Ethics and Leadership Flag.
