About C4E@UofT

The Centre for Ethics at the University of Toronto is an interdisciplinary centre aimed at advancing research and teaching in the field of ethics, broadly defined. The Centre seeks to bring together the theoretical and practical knowledge of diverse scholars, students, public servants and social leaders in order to increase understanding of the ethical dimensions of individual, social, and political life.


In pursuit of its interdisciplinary mission, the Centre fosters lines of inquiry such as foundations of ethics, which encompasses the history of ethics and core concepts in the philosophical study of ethics; ethics in action, which relates theory to practice in key domains of social life, including bioethics, business ethics, and ethics in the public sphere; and ethics in translation, which draws upon the rich multiculturalism of the City of Toronto and addresses the ethics of multicultural societies, ethical discourse across religious and cultural boundaries, and the ethics of international society.
