This course examines the complex relationship between Right vs. Wrong, Us vs. Them, and Good vs. Evil, and applies it to both LOST and the real world.
Why do we consider "others" as inherently bad? Through a philosophical discussion on morality, ethics, and how group dynamics influence our decision-making, this class is designed to provoke thought and discussion about how we come to decide between right and wrong.
