Philosophy as Argumentation and Basic Logic

Hello and welcome to Phil4: Intro to Ethics!  In an ethics class, we ask questions about what is good, what is moral, how we should live and to whom we have moral obligations and why.  In a philosophy class, we try to answer these questions with arguments.  Remember that in philosophy, an argument does not just mean conflict or simple contradiction.  Here is the Monty Python sketch we watched today about arguments.
