3. Course contents *

vidPart 1 focusses on the complex and subtle interrelations between deontic ethics and virtue ethics (M.W. Baron, 'Three Methods of Ethics').

Part 2 develops an 'hermeneutical ethics' in discussion with key-texts of H.-G. Gadamer ('Truth and Method'), S. Kierkegaard ('Concluding Unscientific Postscript'), E. Levinas ('The Uselessness of suffering'), and J. Caputo ('Radical Hermeneutics').
