  • Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought.
  • Must end with a conclusion that reaffirms your thesis.
  • Must make meaningful reference to at least two of the ethical theories studied in the course.

  • Must document all sources in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

  • Overview
    In the Week One Assignment, I formulated a concrete ethical question, took a position on that topic, and identified a reason supporting and a reason opposing that position. I need to discuss either a deontological or utilitarian theory, apply that theory to the question, and raise a relevant objection.

    I need an essay that:

    • Presents a revised formulation of the ethical question and introduction to the topic.
    • Explains the kind of reasoning that expresses the best way to approach this question, and how that reasoning supports the strongest position.
    • Raise an objection, and be able to respond to it.

    Write an essay that conforms to the APA style requirements. The paper must be 1500 to 2000 words in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style.

    The paragraphs of the essay should conform to the following guidelines:

    • Introduction
      First paragraph should begin with the topic question, suitably revised. It should be focused, concrete, and on a relevant moral problem. You should then introduce the topic in the way described by the Week One document attached, but reflecting the developed understanding of deontology and/or utilitarianism

      Follow this with a thesis statement that states a position, and a brief description of the primary reason(s) supporting that position. Finally, provide a brief preview of the overall aim and procedure of your paper.

    • Explanation and Demonstration of Moral Reasoning
      This section of the paper will explain and demonstrate what you believe to be the best way of reasoning about the question ethics of factory farming, and showing how that reasoning supports the position taken on the question. You might explain the principles, rules, values, virtues, conceptions of purposes and ends, and other general ideas that are persuasive, and show how they support concrete judgments.

      In the course of doing so, must make reference to at least two of the approaches such as deontological, utilitarian, or virtue-based, and utilize at least one resource for each of the two approaches.

      For example, one might find the reasoning associated with Aristotelian virtue ethics to be the most compelling, and reference Aristotle in the process of showing how that reasoning supports a certain conclusion. In the course of this, it should be contrasted with a utilitarian approach, referencing Mill for instance.

    • Objection and Response
      After explaining the ethical reasoning that supports the position, raise an objection and respond to it. An objection articulates a plausible reason why someone might find the argument weak or problematic. Explain how it brings out this weakness, and do so in a way that would be acceptable to someone who disagrees with the argument. Then, provide the best response to the objection, showing how it does not undermine the paper’s position. The response should not simply restate the original position or argument, but should say something new in support of it.
    • Conclusion
      Provide a conclusion that sums up what was presented in the paper and offers some final reflections.

    Resource Requirement
    Must use at least four scholarly resources. Textbook is: Mosser, K. (2013). Understanding philosophy
