In previous discussion you selected and described the case for your Ethical Dilemma Project. This week you are to identify the ethical dilemma(s) in the case you chose and apply ethical theory to analyze and resolve the problem(s) you identified in the case.
What is the main ethical conflict or problem? Describe the key ethical dilemma in a few sentences.
Application of Ethical Theory
- Use three ethical theories (Kant’s deontological theory, John Stuart Mill’s teleological theory/utilitarianism/consequentialism, Aristotle’s virtue-based approach, John Rawl’s theory of justice, or your own theory) to analyze and resolve the problem. How would each ethicist explain the ethical problem and resolve it? Use headings to identify each ethical theory and develop each one in one or more paragraphs.
