Virtue Ethics/Ethical Theory
Answer one (1) of the following questions. Due Date: April 23, 2021
Length: 6-8 typed, double-spaced pages, 12 pt font, double-spaced, normal margins. No copying and pasting from the lecture aids. Be sure to show knowledge of the course material in your answer.
(I have chosen the first question which is;)
1) In general, virtue ethics either turns away from the evaluation of actions and emphasizes the evaluation of persons, (or derives the framework for evaluating actions from the evaluation of persons.) What are some strengths of this approach? Weaknesses?
Fairly simple essay, no opinion, no convincing, just objective fact and critical thinking of the strengths and weaknesses of evaluating the person. This is not a comparison essay, please do not compare evaluation of actions to evaluations of persons. The essay should focus solely on the general concept(s) of virtue ethics, primarily the concepts discussed in the course. But obviously you are not taking the course, so you’re probably curious what concepts to include.
The specifics and what I would like for you to include are; Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics Books 1 and 2, Contract Based views on Morality and this is where the Essay will get tricky and dicey but arguments for/against abortion. Again no personal opinions, especially for that part. Regardless of how you or I view abortion, the arguments should be included.
I have attached the PowerPoint slides that were used for Visual Aid during class. Little to no pictures, they are all text and contain some valuable information on the four topics, but as the instructions say; they is no copying and pasting for the lecture slides. Reword and add on to that information please.
No other/external sources are needed, just the book and lecture slides, please ensure to cite both properly. APA. MLA, Chicago, doesn’t matter.
I’m sure you don’t possess that specific book but if you have an interest in philosophy I assume you have some book containing Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics. Just use whatever you have, and I will change it to match my page numbers
Lot of instructions I know, I’m sorry if that was hard to follow, I’m not the best writer hence using the service. Anyways, should you have any requests of me or any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me, the more we talk and help each other the better the paper turns out.
