The   Three Ethical Perspectives

 In Chapter 1 you studied the three ethical perspectives (relativism, emotivism, and ethical egoism), and in Chapter 2 you saw examples of how to apply ethical theories and perspectives to various concrete issues. The purpose of this discussion is to help you understand and apply ethical perspectives. Prepare and post a response to the following prompt:

  • Define and contrast the three ethical perspectives. How      do the perspectives differ from the ethical theories? What does each      ethical perspective tell us about morality and virtue?
  • Think of an issue that has occurred in your community      during the past year. This may be a public issue that has generated      interest in the press, or it may be something that has come up in your child’s      school, in your church, in a social club you belong to, or in your      neighborhood. Describe the issue, and then analyze the issue from the      viewpoint of one of the ethical perspectives. Apply the perspective to the      issue in the same way that the author applies the theories and      perspectives to the issues in the text.

Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly sources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
