Great Discussions 2017 -- Moral Philosophy -- Paul Worsham
Great Discussions 2017 is a highly participatory course designed for those informed and thoughtful people among us who love to engage in real discussion and respectful debate over issues of the day. This course is a forum for exchanging ideas about international and domestic public affairs and America's place in the world.

This one-session course is the first of three sessions of Great Discussions 2017 that will be offered in January, February and March.   LLCC offers this discussion series often. The topics discussed change during the year to coincide with world and domestic events and the interests of the participants.

Participants will discuss current international and domestic issues and events and geo-political trends that affect us as citizens of the world and as Americans.  Participation is limited to 28.  You may register for this course each time that it is announced during the year.

Great Discussions is modeled after the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions program that LLCC offered in the past.

This course is designed to be responsive and flexible to the issues of the world.  Discussions will be active responses to changing circumstances throughout the world. The topic covered during this session of Great Discussions will be moral philosophy a branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct.  The subjects will be What Is a Moral Compass? The Moral Roots of Liberals and Conservatives and Acting On Moral Imperatives.

Joining us at the first class will be Cal Poly Philosophy Professor Tal Scriven to help us discuss What Is a Moral Compass? Prof. Scrivien is the chairman of Cal Poly's Philosophy Department and is the author of the recent book Wrongness, Wisdom and Wilderness, Toward a Libertarian Theory of Ethics and the Environment.

The participants will discuss how to define and apply a Moral Compass in a philosophical way rather than a religious way.  Inevitably this discussion must include the writings of 18th Century philosopher Immanuel Kant, who said that the human mind creates the structure of human experience and that reason is the source of morality.  One immediate and practical use for this philosophical discussion will be to start to answer the nagging question many of are asking ourselves: What does our moral compass tell us that we should do in response to the recent election?

Thursday, January 19 2017, 10:00am- 12:00pm   Union Bank SLO.
