New! Ethical Explorations: From the Ancient Greeks to the Present
4 sessions, 10 hours
Without a doubt, our moral code, or lack thereof, is at the heart of our lives, affecting our finances, politics, legal situation, associations and relationships, and even our most life-changing, intimate personal decisions. In this series of lectures, Dr. Karen Gray considers the history and sources of diverse human codes. She’ll explore moral philosophy in a way that is intended to assist the students in the understanding and nature of their own moral codes, and the ways in which they interact with those whose codes are sometimes not just different, but in conflict with their own. Dr. Gray’s heavily illustrated PowerPoint presentations are two hours long with a 10 minutes break in the middle and half an hour for discussion at the end.
Instructor: Karen Gray, Ph.D., received her S.T.B. degree from Harvard Divinity School and her Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh where her thesis was on “Religious Atheism in Contemporary Western Thought: A Christian Problem and a Buddhist Perspective.” She recently retired after 20 years with the Smithsonian Associates designing adult study tours. She has had a lifelong fascination with the world’s religions which she approaches with openness and from a scholarly perspective. Karen has taught over 30 ILR courses.
