Morality and the Internet Begins on Wednesday, November 2

The class is a look at Morality and the Internet. Initially, I'd thought to focus on cases like the Anthony Weiner scandal, a politician who posted pictures of himself in his underpants. But there are so many issues related to the internet beyond that. And they affect regular people like you and me, not just celebrities and political leaders. The internet affects children and young adults who may do foolish or even dangerous things. We'll hear from school administrators and police as well as others to look at issues that are very relevant to our lives, and discuss the moral implications of behaviours related to use of the internet.

The class is out at Columbia Tech Center on the east side.

People have behaved promiscuously since the dawn of time. But the internet poses all sorts of new opportunities. This course will evaluate the special challenges to being “well behaved” that arise from our new access to worldwide communication and digital media, especially in light of recent scandals. We'll hear from a variety of speakers and engage in lively discussion. No class 11/23.
