How should we live? This question arises for us both as individuals and as members of groups (and citizens of states). In grappling with it, we will inevitably be driven to an even more fundamental axiological question: what (if anything) has value in-itself? States of happiness? Flourishing? Autonomy? Respect for the law? Freedom? Equality? Individual concrete human beings themselves? Individual animals? Species? The ecosystem as a whole? What exactly are the fundamental bearers of value (and disvalue!) and how does this bear on nature of the good (and bad!) life? These are, broadly speaking, ethical questions. Academic disciplines across the curriculum approach these questions from different, but complementary, perspectives.
