Topic: Compare and contrast metaethical theories
Thread: Now that you have learned about competing ethical theories,
write a 500-600 word thread that compares and contrasts a Christian
ethical theory with a competing ethical theory. Since we have already
looked at ethical relativism in DB 1, you should choose from any theory
in the
Moral Reasoning
textbook except ethical relativism. That means
you can choose from Virtue Ethics, Natural Law, Ethical Egoism,
Utilitarianism, Duty Ethics, Social Contract Theory, and Moral Realism
(or any combination of these) in contrast to a Christian ethical theory
such as Divine Command, Divine Nature, or Christian Revelational Ethics
(or a combination of these).
How does each system define “the good?” How does each claim to know “the good?”
What, if anything, do these systems have in common? What, if anything, are their key differences?
Which theory do you think is the stronger ethical theory? Defend
your answer. This final question should take up the majority of your
thread.
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).
