This is a powerpoint file that includes 18 slides. It is meant to be used for an introduction to the topic of Ethics, and would be appropriate for an Ethics class or for an intro to Philosophy course. It provides a brief overview of the study of Ethics: what it is, what morality is, and why it is useful to study it. Also this includes basic terms within ethics, such as: moral and nonmoral value, the Universal Perspective, The Principle of Impartiality, extrinsic and intrinsic value, and lastly, a definition of the three major subdivisions within Ethics - Normative Ethics, Metaethics, and Applied Ethics. The last slide is a quick oral review that summarizes the major points of the lecture. This would be great for a first lecture. It introduces students to the topic, provides an overview and general framework, and includes basic definitions of major terms and concepts. This is high school level.
