Freedom and Moral Agency
PHIL 279
Fall 2011
Section: 01  

How can we be free? Is freedom merely the absence of constraint, or does it require its own rules and principles? How does individual freedom connect to our ideas of political self-determination and history? This course examines Kant's ethical theory and places it within the broader context of his views on politics, religion, and the philosophy of history.
