In recent decades, society has seen a resurgence in a range of ancient ethical systems: Epicureans, Stoics, Cynics and more. This course will cover five distinct moral/ethical systems, their ancient context, their evolution over the millennia, and their modern versions. We will also reflect on some more modern ethical systems and how they compare to and differ from their ancient predecessors.

Michael Couch has been teaching community education courses for over a decade. With an academic background in Philosophy, Classical Studies, Education and History, he recently completed his PhD in the History of Philosophy of Education in New Zealand. He enjoys learning new topics, and incorporates passion and wry humour into all the courses he teaches.
