PHI 305 Week 7 Assignment: Applied Ethics PowerPoint [20 Slides + Speaker notes]



Topic:
Ethical Egoism


 

Prepare a
PowerPoint slideshow presentation on an applied ethical topic. Review the
topics from www.procon.org and choose one of the controversial issues to report
on (or another topic may be suggested for instructor approval.)

 

Prepare a
PowerPoint presentation of 15-20 slides that outlines both sides of the debate.
Address all relevant issues associated with your topic. Note both the positive
and negative aspects of each side of the debate.

 

  1. State the topic in terms of an
    ethical debate/dilemma and relate the issue to at least three ethical
    theories and/or thinkers that have been discussed in the course. Reflect
    on how each ethical theory and/or thinker might address the issue.


 

  1. Be sure to limit discussion of
    the “scientific” debate to a minimum. The presentation should focus on the
    ethical questions.


 

  1. If relevant, consider Biblical
    and/or historic Christian approaches to this issue.


 

  1. Give your own conclusion(s)
    regarding this issue.

    academic references in addition to www.procon.org.
