Question Description

In this discussion, I want you to compare the normative theories of Egoism with Ethics of Care.

  1. Do you find both or either of these theories are at the same level as Utilitarianism, Deontology, Rights Theory, and Virtue Ethics?
  2. The only two ethical theories we are studying from the 20th century were from women. Do you find that these theories are at odds with one another or compatible? In what ways specifically?
  3. In Death of Nature we read that women who challenge the status quo are often demonized and rejected. Do you think that either of these philosophers would have been received differently if they were not women? How do you think their gender has shaped the way they have been received by society? (You may want to read some secondary sources to answer this question if you are unfamiliar with their background)
