The course covers a broad range of subjects regarding moral philosophy, enabling students to obtain a comprehensive understanding of moral action. It also provides students with the tools needed to develop a methodology of ethics applied to significant fields, such as economics, politics, and bioethics. Students will thus address the most stringent ethical questions: Are there objective moral values capable of uniting people, and giving them peace and happiness? What values are they? How do we identify them? How do we apply them to the life of people and communities? A greater understanding of moral philosophy involves different aspects of philosophy and offers a vantage point to develop a synthesis of major issues and to establish a dialogue with contemporary thinking. However, fundamental questions still stand to be answered: What is man? How should he live?
