A social or ethical issue (also called a social problem or a social illness) refers to an issue that influences and is opposed by a considerable number of individuals within a society. There are many of these issues ranging from inequality and homelessness, from abortion and capital punishment, and from war to damage to the environment; in this class we will be discussing a number in detail. The topics we will be discussing are not uniformly agreed upon, these are issues in which the popular opinion among society is divided; they are hotly debated.
The difference in society’s opinion springs from people holding different values, or what one judges to be important in life. We will be examining various viewpoints on a number of controversial contemporary issues, from people who hold different values. The goal of this course is to teach you, the student, how to critically analyze arguments and write papers in a social science context; with the hopes that you will learn to transform your own assertions and viewpoints into coherent arguments.
