Any ethical philosophies you choose from the course can be used to explore your two ethical stances. At a minimum, however, you must investigate your topic of choice (historical or current) through at least two of these “lenses” (This means that you CANNOT use two stances from Group 1, but MUST USE A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE from Groups 2 and 3):


Group 1

–The ancient values of the Greeks (Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics, the Epicureans, etc.)

–The utilitarian principles of Bentham and Mill


Group 2

–The Christian concepts of Creation, Sin, Incarnation, Redemption, and Resurrection Destiny.

–Law & Gospel


Group 3

–Christian Synergy, Integrity, Realism, and Liberation

–Kant’s “Categorical Imperative”




Other notes:


Ø  For this final exercise, you must use third-person voice and keep your tenses consistent. Present tense is appropriate for this work because you will be talking about ideas and ideas are always current. Do not use “I,” “me,” and especially not “you”—you cannot presume to take an informal voice with your readers.

Ø  We will have some class time built in to address any questions and concerns you may have about this assignment as you work on it, but if you need to meet with the instructor privately to discuss your progress, e-mail ([email protected]) to arrange a time. I anticipate that it will require up to twenty hours to research, draft, and polish your paper (the Writing Center can be a good resource for polishing).


Ø  Lastly, remember that you will need to prepare a short, five-minute summary of your work to present on the day of the scheduled final exam. This presentation counts for five (5) points, so you should take some time crafting a concise synopsis of your findings and conclusions.
