Compare Virtue ethics and Kantian Duty ethics, from the Topic 1 and 2 sections. Recap each philosopher’s main view about the nature of ethics and ethical decisions. Explain any difference between the philosophers’ views and state which view you find more convincing. Offer an argument (i.e., evidence) against the view that you reject.

  • Start with making a careful summary the outlooks on ethics we read in Topic 1 or 2. What were their main concepts and definitions, what were their distinctions? Restate their theory and include “direct quotes”, specific references from their work.
  • Explain carefully how these views compare and contrast. Be sure to identify and explain at least one difference between the philosophers’ views. How do they define a key concept or make a major distinction differently?
  • State which view you prefer.
  • Offer an argument against the view that you reject.

·         Use proper grammar.

·         The ratio between the material in the text or others sources, and your opinion or assessment should be approximately 90/10—i. e., 90% material from text or others sources, 10% your opinion or assessment.

·         You may also want to incorporate some research and reading from other sources, including recent books and articles. In regard to the latter, you may check for journals through the library and the state of Alabama system, for current online journal articles—Academic Search Complete and J Store are useful in this regard, if available. Your paper should demonstrate your understanding of the material from the text; you may also demonstrate your skill in research on the topics.
