WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

The complex human experience that we all go through is made more human and equitable by the philosophical framework of ethics and its practical application through the legal and professional structures set up to make sure that we respect and care for our fellow humans. But ethics are not universal; different cultures and countries have diverse ethical frameworks that feed into the culture and, thus, influence the citizens, which in turn influence the structures that make up that society. Discover the relationships between our ethical frameworks and the power of empathy as a tool for building change! This course unpacks contemporary philosophical and practical applications to ethics and ethical conduct (specifically through the lens of social change and sustainability) and explores the visceral and cognitive experience of empathy.
