In this course, we look at classical ethical theories of utilitarianism,
deontology, and virtue ethics. We also examine different perspectives
on ethical issues introduced by relativism, ethical egoism, and
emotivism. For this paper, you will apply these theories and
perspectives to a current issue, selected from the list of issues below.
Choose one of the ethical issues from the list below to research and
write about. It is recommended that you choose a topic that you are
familiar with or that you have thought about previously. For example,
you might choose an issue that either worries you or enrages you, you
might choose one that you have worked on, or you might choose one that
relates to recent events in your community.
- Corporate executive compensation
- Corporate contributions to political campaigns
- Affirmative action
- The media and its responsibilities
- Domestic surveillance
- Whistle blowing in government or in a business
- Religion in the workplace
- Consumer tracking
- Ethical problems of gambling
- Progressive taxation rates
- Women’s equality
In your paper, you will apply the ethical theories and perspectives to
the issue that you select. You do not have to use all six, but you
should apply at least two ethical theories and at least one ethical
perspective in your paper. Make sure that you write primarily on ethical
topics and concepts; do not get distracted by doing analyses that apply
political, economic, religious, or legal perspectives. Describe,
compare, and apply the ethical theories and perspectives to the topics.
Explain how the theories and perspectives would analyze the issue. What
are the ethical issues? Where are there breaches of ethical behavior?
How could each theory help us think about what would constitute virtuous
or ethical behavior?
The paper must be eight to ten pages in length (excluding title and
reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at
least five scholarly resources from the Ashford University Library other
than the textbook to support your claims. Cite your sources within the
text of your paper and on the reference page.
