Comparative Religious Ethics
Using the atrocities and acts of courage committed by “ordinary people” during the Holocaust as the central problem to be investigated, this course examines the ethical perspectives offered by particular strands of Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, and Confucianism. Emphasis is placed on grappling with the problems and possibilities of ethical relativism in a global context.
