Constructing   Arguments

  • Identify the basic themes, topics, and concepts that      make up the discipline of ethics. What are the themes or ideas that unite      the different ethical theories? What is it that ethics aims to explain?
  • Describe how you might apply an ethical theme to one of      the following social issues: 
    • Limiting smoking in public places, such as public       buildings, restaurants, or city parks
    • Municipal governments using public funds to build       stadiums for professional sports teams
    • Requiring a private landowner to provide habitat for       endangered species on their properties

What is your goal when you apply an ethical theme to a specific real-world issue? Distinguish how applying an ethical theme to an issue would differ from applying one of the following perspectives: economics, politics, or religion. What themes might represent the alternative perspective to the issue?
