Provide course feedback here. Thanks! --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 13:00, 14 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Environmental Stewardship Edit

Add a section on "Environmental Stewardship" if a direct connection can be made to human well-being. --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 19:40, 14 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Maximin Edit

Read the book Ethics for Robots, by Derek Leben. Study Maximin consequentialism where the objective is to maximize the outcome of the least fortunate participants. Consider adding a section on this. --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 11:26, 15 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Deep Pragmatism Edit

Add a section on deep pragmatism, adapted from the book Moral Tribes. --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 15:32, 16 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Examples Edit

Add examples of moral choices and demonstrate how each tool informs the decision. Include several worked examples and others as problems to be solved by the students. --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 15:33, 16 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Consider using examples from Wikidebate --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 16:04, 17 April 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The Story of the Chinese Farmer Edit

Introduce The Story of the Chinese Farmer to counter tendencies toward moral certainty. The point is that if we cannot determine, at least in the short term, if any particular event is good or bad, it is a presumptuous to assert moral principles. --Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 12:38, 13 January 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Are universal ethics necessary? Edit

Consider the paper Are universal ethics necessary? And possible? A systematic theory of universal ethics and a code for global moral education, by Enno A. Winkler. Incorporate any new and relevant material into this course. Lbeaumont (discusscontribs) 21:38, 5 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
