Ethics

 Your answers should be between one and four paragraphs per question.  That is, no shorter than one paragraph, no longer than four paragraphs.  Within those guidelines, you should write as much as you feel you need to in order to answer the question - but no more than that. 

 Your answers should be in your own words.  If you feel like you must quote from the handouts, videos, or any other source - you must cite that source.  However, you will lose points if you quote a source rather than putting things in your own words.  The more you quote, the more points you'll lose.  The best exams will have zero quotes and will be exclusively in the student's own words.  The reason for this is simple.  I am not testing your ability to research the answers to the exam questions.  I'm testing your ability to articulate your understanding of them in your own words.  Copying text from any source (even if you change some of the words) without citing that source is plagiarism.  It will result in an automatic grade of 0 for the exam. 


Q-1:  What is ethical subjectivism and how does it differ from ethical relativism?  In class, we discussed a serious objection to ethical subjectivism and ethical relativism.  What was that objection?  Do you agree with it?   

(In the picture is what was discussed in class)


Q-2: In our discussion of utilitarianism, we also discussed a view called hedonism.  What is hedonism?  Describe the "experience machine" objection to hedonism.  Do you agree with the objection - why or why not? 


Q-3:  Describe egalitarianism and libertarianism (recall that these are two theories of distributive justice).  Then describe the "Wilt Chamberlin" argument for libertarianism and against egalitarianism.  Do you agree with that argument?
