Global Ethics: Philosophy - OLET2111

This unit addresses ethical questions that arise in a globalised world. Should we care for all humans equally, or give priority to people from our own culture or nation? Should we tolerate people who are intolerant? What do we owe to future generations? Why protect the environment? If one person can't make a difference, do my actions matter?
