          Grade Method: REG/P-F/AUD In this class we

          theories  apply. Readings will come from a

          being  provided throughout the semester in
          the  form  of handouts.  PREREQUISITE: One

PHIL 452  Advanced Topics in Ethics Moral Psychology              3 credits

          Grade  Method: REG/P-F/AUD The question at
          the  core of this  seminar all concern, in
          one  way  or another,what it  is to lead a
          morally  decent human life.  We will think
          about  the  challenges  involved  both  in
          deliberating about the right action and in
          acting   in   morally   appropriate  ways.
          Sometimes,  it  is  clear  to  us  what we
          morally  ought to do, yet  we seem to lack
          the  motivation  to  perform  the relevant
          actions.   On the other  occasions, we are
          strongly  motivated to  perform an action,
          but  we  are  unsure  about  whether  that
          action  is  morally  justified.  Along the
          way,  we  will  consider  the role  of the
          emotions in moral judgement, what it is to
          take  responsibility  for  one's  life and
          character,  the  role  of  practices  like
          forgiveness  and  reconciliation  in human
          life,  how  our mortality  is connected to
          our  agency.  PREREQUISITES: 2  courses in
          Philosophy or permission of instructor.

PHIL 472  Advanced Topics in the Philosophy of                    3 credits
          Science Scientific Realism                        

          Grade   Method:   REG/P-F/AUD   Scientific
          realism is the optimistic view that modern
          science  is on the  right track; the world
          is  really  as our  best theories describe
          it. Scientific realism has various tenets.
          Yet   all  of  them  have  been  seriously
          challenged. In this course, we shall study
          some of the main arguments for and against
          scientific realis.  In our study, we shall
          consider questions such as: Are scientific
          theories  merely instruments for empirical
          predictions,  or  do they  reflect the way
          the world really is? If scientific realism
          is  false, how can  we explain the success
          of science? What are the relations between
          scientific theories and scientific models,
          i.e. between abstract theories and working
          models  that  scientists  actually  use in
          their  everyday work? The  course does not
          require  any special background in science
          or  philosophy,  though  a  background  in
          science  or the philosophy of science will
          certainly  be an advantage. PREREQUISITES:
          Two courses in philosophy or permission of
          the instructor.
