Description: After a brief introduction to philosophical texts, the Socratic method, and the structure of argumentation, learners will begin their journey to identify, interpret, and then construct solutions to normative ethical theories. Learners will study the fundamental ethical principles from the top three approaches of our time, Utilitarianism, Kantianism, and Virtue Theory. Learners will then apply the leading theories to their discipline, composing arguments for ethical and well-reasoned approaches to critical issues. Overall, this course seeks to build a foundation of philosophy and ethics that learners will incorporate into their chosen nursing field.
