Description Examines theories of social change, social institutions, and major contemporary political theories.

Contrasts Immanuel Kant's view that actions are intrinsically moral to John Stuart Mill's theory that the end result determines the rightness or wrongness of an act. Includes material from social theorists such as Paley, Nietzsche, B. F. Skinner, and Ayer. Prereq. PHL 1001.
