Personal Morality

Write 4–6 pages in which you articulate the basis for your personal ethical code and apply it to a contemporary issue. Ethical conduct is an intensely personal, individual choice. Once you have formed a personal ethic, it is also important to articulate it.

>Context: When it comes right down to it, ethical conduct is an intensely personal, individual choice. No one can distinguish right from wrong in a way that is binding for anyone else. Each individual is responsible for: -Developing a coherent set of ethical principles. -Applying them effectively in making moral decisions. -Pursuing actions that constitute a worthwhile life.

Instructions: Write a paper in which you explain your own basis for making ethical decisions. You are welcome to employ what you have learned from your study of traditional approaches, but you may also develop your own distinctive approach. In either case, explain in some detail exactly what foundation and process you rely on for choosing the right course of action, and support your statements with research from professional or scholarly resources.

As part of your paper, select a contemporary ethical issue about which you have strong convictions. It may be a social issue—such as environmental ethics, marriage equality, or bioethics—or a more personal issue—sexual morality, familial obligations, or care for the elderly, for example. The choice is up to you, but make it something you care about enough to make this project interesting and worthwhile.

Address the following in regard to your chosen ethical issue: –Summarize the issue and explain alternative views about its resolution. –Assess both sides of the issue, critically analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of each. –Finally, show how and why your own position is correct.

Think of this as an opportunity to persuade potential opponents of the reasonableness of your view. >Paper Sections: 1. Intro (Short) 2. Alternative positions and [ethical issue] [Explains alternative positions with respect to a significant ethical issue.]
