There is a prima facie duty not kill people. But, in certain circumstances it seems permissible to do so. The course explores under which conditions killing is morally acceptable and the kinds of constraints that we face when killing someone. We will address some of the following questions: do we have to save the greater number of people? When killing in self-defence is permissible? Are abortion and euthanasia morally acceptable? What constraints do apply when killing in war?
