Throughout this semester, you are expected to keep a journal of your reaction, thoughts, and criticisms of the course material. You are required to write an entry for only 10 of the readings covered in class. Each journal entry should be at least 300 words long. these entries are open-ended so that you may write on whatever you would like, as long as what you say directly connects with the course material. On the other hand, I would like you to think deeply about these issues and support your responses. As a result, do not simply say “I thought the reading was interesting. I thought the debate was interesting. I learned a lot” multiple times throughout your journal, without providing detailed support. Instead, refer to direct concepts and ideas, and/or reflect on the ways that the section may have affected the way you think about yourself or the world around you. Here are some possible questions you might explore:
What interesting thing did you gain from this specific reading? What criticisms do you have about this specific reading? (be sure to defend your answer);
How might the ideas/arguments discussed in the reading relate to or compare with your own worldviews, life experiences, etc.? The source of this all theories is the book Exploring Ethics ( Steven m. Chan) Forth EDITION These are the theories you have to write about: 1. Moral Relativisam (p. 27 to 42), 2. God and Morality ( p.50 to 52), 3. Utilitarianism (p. 118-129),
4. The Ethics of Care (p. 148-153)

Using Kant’s categorical imperative as a guide, analyze one of the following moral dilemmas to determine what the morally right course of action is. Be sure to explain your reasoning along with explaining your conclusion:
a. Mired in a deep depression in which you believe that your life has no meaning and that there is no reason for going on, you contemplate suicide.
b. Financial reverses have put you on the verge of bankruptcy and personal financial ruin. Your only hope is to borrow money, but you also know that there is no chance that you will be able to repay the borrowed funds.
c. You have been told that you possess a great talent in ________, and you are confident that you could fulfill your unique potential and accomplish great things in this area. But you are also lazy: The prospect of making the kind of commitment in time and energy to realize your talent seems daunting. Why not continue to enjoy the simple, relaxed pleasures of life rather than work so hard?
d. Fortune has been good to you, and you are financially very comfortable. You realize that many others are less fortunate than you, but your attitude is, “I wish them well, but they have to improve their lives on their own. I became a success by my own efforts – let them do the same.”

For this research paper, you will be expanding on the topic that you chose in your paper proposal. (I will attach the paper proposal that i have done earlier) In any case, the goal is for you to analyze those ideas according to whether or not you agree, and to give REASONS for why you agree or disagree. Lastly, the goal is to give you some practice with citation and referencing. For this reason part of the marked component will be the degree to which you are consistent in the citation style you use, whether you have at least two sources, and whether you clearly indicate in your paper where you are quoting and where you got the quote(s) from.

Utilitarianism uplifts ‘the greatest happiness principle’ and asks us to measure

Utilitarianism uplifts ‘the greatest happiness principle’ and asks us to measure the consequences of our actions above all else. But then the next question arrives, who and what counts as consequential, especially as we consider large-scale problems such as climate injustice? In one of this week’s readings, philosopher Kyle Whyte reflects on the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of place in this world:
Is there a succinct way to convey an Indigenous perspective on climate justice that makes all these connections? Perhaps a story of vessels can be created to describe Indigenous climate justice. Stories of vessels, such as ships, canoes and boats, are often created to describe the relationships among different societies who share land, water and air. Buckminster Fuller’s “spaceship earth” flies through space without the possibility of getting more fuel and supplies, illustrating dependence on finite resources (Fuller, 2008). Garrett Hardin described rich countries as lifeboats surrounded by poor people swimming in the surrounding oceans – there is only so much room on the lifeboat for poor people as environmental and economic conditions deteriorate (Hardin, 1974). Martin Luther King, Jr., in an attempt to motivate respect for diversity and justice in the U.S., said the widely quoted phrase “We may have come to these shores on different ships, but we are now all in the same boat” (3).
Instead of the spaceship or lifeboat, Whyte offers an allegory featuring canoes, aircraft carriers, and hovercrafts; “[t]he pool of waters and sky are the earth system at broad and local scales.” For him (and Hoover), the earth system is not destined to be rendered a wasteland (the tragedy of the commons) because of humanity’s unchecked greed–the earth system is abundant, and human cultures are adaptive. The real problem has to do with the design of the aircraft carriers and hovercrafts.
Ask yourself as you read, are we adrift on a lifeboat and doomed to violence, hoarding, and gorging as we fight for survival? Or are other stories possible?
