Set Text

Nick will be teaching:

Mark Walker, Happy-People-Pills for All (Blackwell, 2013). It's available relatively cheaply as a kindle book.

Richard will be working through Aaron Zimmerman's book, Moral Epistemology (Routledge, 2010). It will not be necessary to purchase this book. The entry on moral epistemology in the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy provides a good quick taste of the classical approach to the subject.

Readings for Ramon's section will be available on Blackboard or on-line.
