In recent years, traditional models and values of human life have come under serious question. With the growing acceptance of ethical relativism as well as the acceptance of functionalistic and materialistic models of human beings, moral values and decisions have become vague and confusing. This course will help students to steer more clearly through the moral fog they will encounter as they attempt to live out a Christian ideal of a flourishing human life themselves and within a social matrix with others of varying beliefs and values.
