This is a two part series on Ethical Issues, Spring 2016 at Salve Regina University. In the first half of the lecture I explain a series of distinctions within being for the purpose of preparing the way for more meaningful discussion of the ethical issues we will discuss in later weeks. Here is the list of items on the handout:Distinctions within being:
2. Ens/esse/essentia Being/existence (that)/essence (what how)
3. General essence/“concrete“ essence (instantiation)
This is lecture 2 part 2 of Ethical Issues, Spring 2016 at Salve Regina University. In this lecture I closely analyze 2 paragraphs of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail in order to express clearly the relation between the natural law and made made laws. After that there is a combination lecture/discussion of C.S. Lewis book The Abolition of Man.
