1.Choose a moral issue
that interests you and a moral theory that we have studied (Aristotelian virtue
ethics, Kantian deontology, or consequentialism) to apply to that issue. For
example, you might choose the controversy surrounding torture of terrorism suspects
in order to acquire information about future targets and apply Kant’s moral
theory to that controversy.
2.In an essay of at least
1000 but not more than 1300 words, (a) explain in detail the nature of the
moral issue you will discuss, (b) explain the moral theory you have chosen to
apply to the issue in enough detail that its relevance to the moral issue will
be clear, and (c) explain the judgment about the moral issue that we should
draw on the basis of the moral theory you have chosen. Be sure to make
reference to the text including appropriate and brief direct quotations. Use
APA citation style.
