This course is an introduction to ethics and metaethics. It will introduce the main metaethical views and the main normative ethical theories.  A normative ethical theory is a first-order theory about how we should determine the answers to substantive ethical questions, such as: What should I do? What kind of person should I be? We will discuss three main types of normative ethical theory: consequentialism, deontology and virtue ethics. A metaethical view is a view about the metaphysics and epistemology of morality. We will discuss realist and anti-realist metaethical views.
