Project #35140 - Introduction to Ethics 340

This is my final paper and I need all the point I can get! It is worth 100.

Instructions: The paper is worth 100 points.  Late papers are docked ½ letter grade for every day late.  Papers should contain no less than 5 full pages of text, 12 point font, double-spaced, 1 inch margins. Papers should demonstrate a thorough awareness of the topic as well as the ability to engage in philosophical reasoning. Outside research is not necessary, but if you use external sources you must provide complete citations. Failure to cite your sources is academic misconduct and will result in a failure of the assignment (for more information, see the Academic Honesty section of the syllabus). Papers should be sent directly to your instructor as an email attachment. Please include your name and the course number in the subject line of your email.

Assignment: The first half of your book deals with normative ethical theories, as did the majority of the early modules for the course.  For this assignment, you should explain the moral theory with which you most agree. After outlining the theory and your reasons for preferring it, you should apply this moral theory to a single environmental issue. (For example, you might apply utilitarian thinking to the problem of rain forest logging, or apply virtue theory to animal shelters, or Kantianism to the question of whether one should be a vegetarian.  In this case, you should offer a detailed analysis which demonstrates both your understanding of the theory as well as an awareness of the theory’s strengths and weaknesses.  Be sure to define key terms.
