Introduction to Ethics (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 23-slide PowerPoint presentation is taken from the one that I used in my university classroom. It is organized in a manner that helps the student understand the place of ethics within the much broader discipline of philosophy. Another advantage of this presentation is that is arranged in a systematic, organized fashion so that the student can clearly understand the sub-branches of ethics itself. Topics covered include the following: Major branches of philosophy, three divisions in ethics, three major normative theories (Virtue ethics, Utilitarianism, Deontological ethics), and the trolley cart scenarios. Great for class discussion!
Descartes & Rationalism (PowerPoint)

Descartes & Rationalism (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 43-slide PowerPoint is what I use when teaching Intro to Philosophy or Philosophy of Human Nature at the university. It is extremely detailed, includes multiple quotes from the Discourse and Meditations, and presents not just the Cogito, but why in fact this was such a significant statement in the history of Western Philosophy. It was, for Descartes, his fundamental building block (certainty; foundationalism) in erecting his edifice of knowledge. In addition, notes are included for some slides in the note section as a teacher’s aid.

Peter Singer - Famine, Affluence, and Morality (PowerPoint)
condreybjcondreybj

Peter Singer - Famine, Affluence, and Morality (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 19-slide presentation was used for a lecture in Ethics and the Good Life in a University classroom. It covers the nuts and bolts of Singer’s theory that people in the West should be doing MUCH more to alleviate world hunger (save lives). It is vital that his moral position on this matter be presented in connection with his more general affiliation with Act Utilitarianism, so this is addressed in detail in this lecture. For this reason, it is a great presentation for not only discussing Singer’s moral view, but also to introduce or refresh students on Utilitarianism, one of the major normative theories in Western Philosophical Ethics. This is also an interesting way to introduce students to the term and concept of supererogation, a term that has moved to the forefront of moral philosophy since J.O. Urmson’s landmark article in 1958 titled, “Saints and Heroes.”

My Confessions by Leo Tolstoy - Part 1 (PowerPoint w/ Link for Reading)

My Confessions by Leo Tolstoy - Part 1 (PowerPoint w/ Link for Reading)

(0)
This 25-slide presentation was created and used in a University classroom. Leo Tolstoy, most famous for his realistic fiction (e.g., Anna Karenina and War and Peace), wrote an autobiography of sorts reflecting upon a horrible existential crisis that he encountered around the age of 50. He wants to find meaning, and neither his family nor his “art” (writing) seem to have any purpose. This is truly a dark time, and when he looks for answers in the “field of experimental science” and “speculative philosophy,” he comes up short. This presentation was created in conjunction with the following link which can be downloaded as a PDF (click here to be redirected). This presentation (Part 1) goes with pages 1-12 of the reading, and covers the first half of his experience: his darkest hour and his attempt to try and resist the temptation to commit suicide. In Part 2 (also available for purchase in the store), Tolstoy’s solution will be discussed.

Stoicism - Epictetus (PowerPoint with Reading Material)

(0)
This 21-slide PowerPoint presentation has been used in a university classroom and has been designed to introduce students to Stoicism as one of the three main schools of Hellenistic philosophy along with Epicureanism and Cynicism. This particular presentation not only introduces Stoicism as a way of life (not focusing as much on logic and nature), but it does so through the particular writings of Epictetus (another presentation is forthcoming that will introduce students to the Meditations by Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, another Stoic philosopher). This presentation has been created with the following in mind: Aesthetic appeal Being informative while still having a streamlined appearance Includes many original quotes Makes a connection with Proverbs and Buddhism Reading for this presentation: The Enchiridion by Epictetus
