Viewers will hear how the role of ethics in management practices, global marketing, and corporate ethics and social responsibility differs from culture to culture. This video will address the evolution of our understanding of global ethics in response to global political and economic challenges and opportunities."
"Probes the ethical dimension in an effort to understand what motivates believers to behave according to their beliefs. Tangible results of belief practices are observed in the building of religious monuments such as pyramids and cathedrals, the observation of prayer rituals, and the committing of terrorist acts, to name a few. The lesson compares religious ethics (proper patterns of action) and rules of ethics in society (law, custom, morals). It also attempts to discern how obligation, responsibility, and punishment are present in religious ethical systems."

The purpose of the Nicomachean Ethics is to teach one how to become good. Aristotle begins this task with the claim that every voluntary human activity “seems to aim at some good.” He proceeds to arrange the goods in a hierarchy that points to the highest good — happiness.
In the Nicomachean Ethics—the first book written on the subject of how best to live—Aristotle argues that human happiness chiefly depends upon a person’s character, which is formed by making good choices. This course examines Aristotle’s teachings about human nature, the meaning of the good, and the virtues necessary for happiness. Students will not only learn what Aristotle says about the good life, but will also explore ways to put this knowledge to work."--Hillsdale College
