DR. KORCZ'S COURSES FOR FALL 2014:

PHIL 111 Contemporary Moral Dilemmas
Does what is right or wrong just depend on what a person believes? or their religious beliefs? or what? Is the death penalty morally permitted? Is abortion? Is torturing animals morally right? Even if we kill and eat them later? We'll examine both sides of these and other ethical issues. No prerequisites or religious belief required.

PHIL 210 - Practical Argumentation
Is creationism true? How can people believe in parapsychology? UFO abductions? psychic surgery and other quack medicine? We'll examine each of these issues and more in light of inductive logic and the fundamental principles of scientific explanation. No prerequisites.

PHIL 316 Professional Ethics
A survey of issues in the ethics of business. No prerequisites.
