As publicly employed one has to make decisions concerning the use of public funds or authority. Such decisions demand reasons, which refer to norms beyond what is just good for me. The discussion of such norms is the business of practical philosophy, .i.e. ethics, politics, philosophy of law, education etc. This course presents the forms of ethics and politics, which are most commonly discussed. In focus will be philosophers such as Aristotle, Kant, Mill, Nietzsche, Rawls, and Levinas. Course offered by Department of Education.
