• What is the Doctrine of Double Effect? Describe a case in which the doctrine could be used as a source of moral guidance. Do you think the Doctrine of Double Effect gives good advice in this case? What about in general?

• Present in detail the consequentialist argument for the conclusion that moral absolutism is irrational. Do you find this argument compelling? Why or why not?

•What do you think is the biggest attraction of Ross’s view? Explain why Ross’s view has this attraction and why some competing ethical theories do not. Is this a sufficient reason to accept Ross’s theory or not?

•Describe the three traditional approaches to the question of how we come to know moral claims. Which do you find the most attractive, and why?

• What is a virtue? How are virtues acquired? Do you agree with Aristotle’s claim that virtue is essential to the good life? Why or why not?
•How do we come to have moral knowledge, according to virtue ethics? In what way does this account of moral knowledge differ from the accounts given by previous theories? Which do you think is better, and why?
• In what ways have Western philosophers traditionally marginalized and shown disrespect for women? How does feminist ethics seek to address this problem?
•What are some of the distinctive experiences of women, and how have feminist ethicists suggested that these should inform our moral theorizing? Do you think they are correct in thinking this?
