Expressions of interest are invited for two causal teaching opportunities at UNSW in S2 2013.

Expressions of interest should be no longer than one page, and should be followed with a c.v. covering research interests and prior teaching experience.  These are casual positions and payment will be in accordance with UNSW’s causal pay rates.   Previous course outlines can be provided on request.

Please send EOIs to Dr Melissa Merritt at m.merritt at unsw.edu.au<mailto:m.merritt at unsw.edu.au>.  Please also clearly indicate which course you wish to be considered for (it is possible to ask to be considered for both).  Please send your materials by 15 April.

ARTS 3360: Philosophy Capstone – Examining Pivotal Texts (Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason)

This is a required course for students completing the major in philosophy.  The course is currently set up as study of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason, along with a selection of related texts.  The aim is to be inclusive, and to show how problems in metaphysics and epistemology are not neatly separable from problems in ethics and philosophy of action (e.g., around the topic of freedom).  It meets once per week as a 3-hour seminar.  The syllabus is already prepared, which the instructor should follow.

ARTS 2383: Reason and Passion in Ethics – An Introduction to Moral Theory

This is a second-year course in moral theory.  The syllabus is currently set up with units on Hume, Kant and Kantian deontology, and Mill and Utilitarianism.  The instructor would have some scope to make adjustments (e.g., perhaps removing some readings in order to make room for virtue ethics as a distinct alternative in moral theory), or the instructor could follow the current syllabus entirely.
