TS/ID253 : Ethical Issues in Asia (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : 2021
About this course
Ethical issues arise today’s world as a result of the rapid and far-reaching changes caused by movements like globalization, and the increased sophistication and pervasiveness of technology in all of life. Issues arise for Christians because our values are at variance with the world’s. Thus, all Christians need a theological framework which can guide thought and action and develop Christian character.
By way of readings, discussions and case studies, this course will provide a framework within which Christians can make moral choices especially for ethical issues such as those related to the beginning and end of life, sexuality, marriage and family, wealth and poverty.
Those doing this course for 1.5credits shall attend all classes in July and August, as well as the weeks for presentations in October. Those doing this course for 3credits shall attend all classes.
