Introduction to Ethics (PowerPoint)

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!
Epicureanism - Philosophy of Pleasure (PowerPoint w/ Readings)

Epicureanism - Philosophy of Pleasure (PowerPoint w/ Readings)

(0)
This 27-slide presentation has been carefully crafted with the teacher and student in mind. On a few slides, there is a one-sentence note that will help teachers know what point needs to be made. Also, slides have been designed to be aesthetically rich, informative, but still streamlined. I never want the teacher or student to feel overwhelmed with text. That being said, one of the strengths of this presentation is that quotes are taken from two online sources that both students and teachers can access: Principle Doctrines by Epicurus Letter to Menoeceus Essentially, Epicureanism is one of the two main schools of thought (philosophy) during the Hellenistic period of Ancient Greece. The other is Stoicism. Epicureanism is a philosophy of life that is hedonistic, yet this focus on pleasure is not what most people in our contemporary society would imagine. Epicurus’s treatment of pleasure is much richer and nuanced than what many would think.

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.

The Apology - by Plato (PowerPoint)

(0)
This 20-slide lecture is informative, aesthetically pleasing, and intentionally designed so that one slide naturally follows from the other. The Apology is one of 42 dialogues that Plato writes. It is one of his early dialogues, meaning that it actually gives us a glimpse into the historical Socrates as opposed to the middle and later dialogues where Plato only uses Socrates as a mouthpiece to communicate his (Plato) own ideas. This powerpoint covers the following topics: What is the overall theme of the Apology? Who was Plato? Major Themes Wisdom is knowing that you don’t know Knowing one’s limits is key Virtue is Knowledge Death is not to be feared Socrates’ concern for his sons
Peter Singer - Famine, Affluence, and Morality (PowerPoint)

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.”

This presentation has been designed with both the teacher and student in mind. It is aesthetically appealing and built so that one slide naturally flows after the other. Also, the following worksheet has been created to accompany this PowerPoint. It consists of 15 multiple-choice and true/false questions, and two more short-essay questions. Click here to view.
