REL 410. Dharma/Adharma: Hindu Ethical Reasoning

What values are advanced in Hindu religious and ethical teachings? How do Hindu texts and traditions define and teach the good life and virtuous living? Is moral responsibility conditioned by caste, class, gender or other socioeconomic factors? These are some of the questions that will be considered in this study on Hindu modes of moral reasoning. It will give special attention to the concept of moral order (dharma) and try and make sense of chaos (adharma).
