Topic A: Environmental Ethics
Look up the term Environmental Ethics at http://plato.stanford.edu/, then answer the following questions: Do you think that a book, a plant, or a building can be said to have a good of its own? Can things be done in its best interest? Does it have interests? Explain your answers and whether you think that this is a good reason to think of that as having intrinsic value (CO5).
Topic B: Self-Evident Intuitions
Westermarck writes, “…a theory which leads to an examination of the psychological and historical origin of people’s moral opinions should be more useful than a theory which postulates moral truths enunciated by self-evident intuitions that are unchangeable” (CO5). Agree or disagree and give your reasons.
And finally, please reflect on the following:
- How will you include ethics in your present or future career?
- How will you talk about ethics as a career competency?
