FIRST WORK: Assignments
Using web based research, find an environmental-based ethical dilemma from the past five years online.
(You can use a news story, an internet article, a law case, or anything from a governmental database for this assignment.)
Then, using this story as a foundation for your dilemma:
- Create a 2-4 paragraph “dilemma” similar to the other dilemmas you have been solving throughout this term.
- Solve the dilemma using Kant’s ethics (Categorical Imperative).
- Solve the dilemma using any other method we have discussed to date (with which you agree.)
- State which resolution (Kant’s or the other one you chose) you prefer and why.
(It is possible that one or more of these dilemmas you write may become future exam questions for this course, so keep that in mind while you write the dilemma.)
This assignment should be about two typed pages, double-spaced. You MUST provide the source of the dilemma, and thus this paper will require at least one “references.” Use APA format in citing the source, and let me know if you have questions on how to do that. (If you have questions on how to set up the Work Cited, please first visit this website and use the citation maker to help you: Landmark Citation Machine.)
