HUM 560 Lies and Secrets

This course will explore social and moral questions associated with lying and secrecy. When, if ever, is it morally permissible to lie? Is it invariably wrong to reveal someone’s secret to the public? To what extent are political candidates and government officials obligated to be open with the public about their personal affairs or their religious beliefs? How are these questions treated in literary or other cultural contexts? This course may be taught from a number of humanities disciplines. (3)
