Intergenerational Ethics: The Millennial Perspective

HOUSECS 59.02

Spring 2018

Sundays, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM, Bishop's House, Room 102

This class explores generational perspectives on today’s ethical issues through an interactive approach;
ten undergraduates partner with “overgrads” in OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) to lead
discussions to pursue and share perspectives on current issues. The emphasis of this course is to fine
tune your ethical code, and consider where you derive it from. Topics of social and political interest with
ethical grounding will be explored with the guiding question from Socrates: “How, then, shall we live?”
