Applied Ethics

Co-creator and lecturer, Tel Aviv University 

The course presents practical tools to examine ethical issues in everyday decision-making, while using disciplines from ethics, economics, behavioural science, exact sciences and more. For example, to what extent should global catastrophes worry us, and what can and should be done about them? Should empirical evidence influence our ethical decisions, and how? What could be done about global poverty and health? Do we have a moral obligation towards others, and if so, to whom, and does it include animals? How can moral commitment be incorporated into career decisions? And more.

Debate

Creator and lecturer, Tel Aviv University

The course teaches the fundamentals of debating, with a focus on how to use them in everyday life. For example: how to find the most relevant and effective message on every topic, articulate the message, present it persuasively and deal with objections. The course aims at developing logic, analytical skills and rapid thinking. Students acquire multiple reasoning approaches and the ability to deliver a debate speech in front of an audience. The methods learned were developed by debate experts and are practiced at leading universities worldwide.
