The Semester by the numbers...50, 80, 6

50 ethics students (2 classes)
80 logic students (2 classes)
6 debaters (1 class)

136 students -- much better than my first semester at BNCC when I had 250.

Some semesters it pays to know how to work the system.

So I assume you teach ethics and logic. Philosophy is a hobby of mine. May I ask what sort of ethics?

I usually teach the general introduction to ethics course... divided between ethical theory and contemporary moral issues. I have also taught Medical Ethics.

I'm writing a dissertation in the area of ethics.. more specifically (trying to phrase it so as to avoid google) -- the moral problems that come up in situations like the GWB admin. has us in right now where they are shooting at our guys in brown chamo uniforms... if you get my drift....
