Ethics Research Paper # 2

Attached Files:

Reflection Paper (final research paper) Consider the ethical theories we’ve discussed in class across the semester. Choose one that you believe is a representative model for yourself. It can be a blend of a few theories (be specific) or one that fully embodies how you would like to frame your own ethical decisions.  Consider the following within your paper:

  • Name of the theory(s)
  • Early adopters/shapers of the theory
  • Principles or rules associated with that theory
  • Modern updates to that theory
  • The challenges of it
  • Why you chose it, how you will apply it to your own life and how will you overcome the challenges associated with it.

Examples:

  • Utilitarianism
  • Deontological Ethics
  • Virtue-Based Ethics
  • Egoism
  • Relativism
  • Absolutism

*You are welcomed to write about an ethical theory specifically pertaining to either your personal or professional decisions. An example of this could be choosing virtue-based ethics for your personal life but utilitarianism for your professional career. If you would like to write about a theory pertaining to a specific area in your life – that is acceptable, but make it clear in your paper. *The rubric is attached to this announcement and your Syllabus*Requirements and guidelines for the second research paper are attached.Research Paper 2 Requirements
