Topic: Applying my Ethical Theory
Thread: For Discussion Board Forum 3, you devised your own approach to metaethics. Now it is time to see how well it can be applied to actual issues. Your assignment for this week’s Discussion Board is to briefly remind us of your approach to metaethics (this should only take a few lines) and then apply this approach to one of the issues in applied ethics that were discussed in the reading assignments. These issues ranged from familial problems through pacifism, poverty, the environment, business ethics, healthcare, sexuality, and life and death. Pick whichever one interests you most and in 500-600 words apply your metaethical theory to some aspect of the issue that was discussed in the reading in order to demonstrate what the moral approach to the issue is.
Be sure to carefully define your terms. You are encouraged to support your position with rational arguments, fitting examples, and expert sources. Any quotes or information used from sources other than yourself must be cited using footnotes in current Turabian format and will not count towards the total word count.
You will be penalized for falling short or exceeding the word count. This is a university-level writing assignment and therefore it must be carefully proofread, free of grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. Do not use slang, emoticons, or abbreviations (as if you are texting or sending an email to a friend).
