    This course introduces students to Kant’s moral philosophy, focusing on his normative ethics. We will pay special attention to how Kant’s emphasis on virtue in his later ethical writings enables a response to many of the historical and contemporary criticisms leveled against him. We will also discuss some remaining worries about his theory; for example, those stemming from his rigorism or his views on race and gender.

It’s the interpersonal humor—banter, teasing, mockery, leg-pulling, and more—that raises serious moral questions, as it may well involve deception, cruelty, or stereotyping.
