Is the agreement the result of your cultural, religious, and/or socioeconomic upbringing?
Write a 500 to 750-word essay responding to the following prompt.
We have discussed several moral viewpoints and their relationship to each other. In particular, our discussion showed that there exist at least three major groups of moral viewpoints along a spectrum of moral positions. We discussed several viewpoints within each of those groups and how those viewpoints are related and differentiated from each other. We also discussed how the three major groups of moral viewpoints are related and differ. For this paper please address the two following objectives:
1) Of the nine moral viewpoints we discussed, with which do you find yourself most in agreement? Is the agreement the result of your cultural, religious, and/or socioeconomic upbringing? If your moral position is the result of one of the aforementioned sources, explain briefly how you have maintained your reliance upon this moral viewpoint, particularly in light of the discussion we had in class about the spectrum of moral positions. If your moral position is founded upon sources different from culture, religion or socioeconomic background, briefly explain how you arrived at your moral position. Also, please briefly explain how you have maintained your reliance upon it. (In other words, for this part of the paper, I’m asking you to reflect upon the source(s) of your moral viewpoint/outlook, how you arrived at it, and how you have been able to maintain it given the existence of so many competing viewpoints.)
2) Of the nine moral viewpoints, which do you think has the strongest position against your own? Clearly, succinctly, and honestly and fairly explain that position (the one that is against your own, not your own). What response or argument(s) does your moral viewpoint have against the challenges posed by this opposing moral viewpoint?
