  • Define and contrast the three ethical perspectives. (relativism, emotivism, and ethical egoism)
  • How do the perspectives differ from the ethical theories?
  • What does each ethical perspective tell us about morality and virtue?

Think of an issue that has occurred in the community where you live during this past year. This may be a public issue that has generated interest in the press, or it may be something that has come up in your child’s school, in your church, in a social club you belong to, or in your neighborhood. Describe the issue, and then analyze the issue from the viewpoint of one of the ethical perspectives. Include at least one external source that references your issue (e.g., a newspaper article, news report, published report, etc.).

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required resources and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references in APA Style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center resources Introduction to APA (Links to an external site.) and Integrating Research (Links to an external site.).
