ALS 2600 - Urban Philosophical Dilemmas 3 s.h.


This course is designed to answer questions relevant to urban America, questions that have been largely ignored by academic philosophers. For instance: Is it morally wrong to snitch on your friends? If you're from "the hood" (whatever that might be), is it morally/politically/socially wrong to want to leave it? What are the epistemological assumptions of keepin' it real (or is this just an empty rhetorical phrase)? If you're out to get bling bling, are you contributing to the capitalist system that often oppresses the traditionally underrepresented? At what point do artists and musicians stop being gritty and raw and start being parodies and stereotypes? A-E Only. Offered Fall and Spring.
