(I am doing milestone one) In Task 2-2, you will submit a 1-2 page Research Proposal that identifies the topic and includes the following information. The topic should include introduction and background information. It will be important to explain the problem that you identified and how it came to your attention and the perspective that served as a background for the issue or strategy that is your focus. After identifying the question(s) you intend to answer, you will begin to collect and analyze the data. You will need to explain your research methodology (i.e., typology, supporting data collection methods, and analysis plan). Describe the types of data you intend to collect. If applicable, identify any documents that you intend to develop as you collect the data. Predict any challenges you think you might face in collecting your data. It will be important to address the following questions: How will you analyze the data you collected? What were the challenges you think you might face in analyzing the data? Is the broad enough to allow for a range of insights and findings; and conversely Is it narrow enough to be manageable within your time frame and your daily work? Why do you want to research this specific topic/problem?
In Chapter 1 of your text, you saw how moral reasoning involves moving back and forth between general, abstract ideas like principles and values and particular concrete judgments about what is good or right, and seeking to find a kind of agreement or equilibrium between those. In Chapters 3, 4, and 5, you were introduced to utilitarianism, deontology, and virtue ethics. Each of these ethical theories represents different ways of reasoning about ethical questions, based in different account of the principles, values, and other conceptions that inform the abstract side of the dialectic. In this course, and in much of life, the concrete ethical issues that receive the most attention are frequently those that elicit passionate responses and widespread debate, affect large numbers of people, involve matters of deep significance like life and death or fundamental rights, and so on. However, as important as these issues are, there is often a limit to how much impact most individuals can have on such matters; instead, the place where ethics and moral reasoning have their greatest impact is in ones local community. Thus, in this final discussion board, you will demonstrate your grasp of the relation between the abstract ideas in one of these theories and a concrete ethical issue or social problem in your local community. Engage the community: Begin by finding an ethical issue or social problem that currently impacts or has recently impacted your local or regional community (such as your neighborhood, town or city, county, school district, religious community, or something of similar scope to any of these). Briefly summarize the issue or problem, and provide a link to a news article, video, or some other resource that documents the issue or problem so that your fellow students can learn more about it when formulating their responses to you. Apply the theory: Next, choose one of the ethical theories and discuss how the moral reasoning of the theory might be used to address or resolve the issue or problem. Evaluate the reasoning: In evaluating the application of the moral theory you may, for example, consider one or more questions like: Does this differ from the way this issue is currently being addressed? Does it present a better response than another ethical approach would? Does the theory present an adequate response to the issue, or does it leave significant aspects of the issue unresolved? Does applying the theory to this issue raise other problems or concerns? In light of this issue, are there ways the principles or values of the theory might need to be modified from the form that we studied in class?
Charitably imagine how de Beauvoir, from her Ethics of Ambiguity, would argue for or against a significant argument from English’s “What do Adult Children Owe Their Parents,” they argue for or against that imagined argument. In five pages 1) explain to your reader the bare minimum needed to know from either English’s “What do Adult Children Owe Their Parents” or de Beauvoir’s Ethics of Ambiguity, depending on the one you exclusively focus on in your essay; 2) argue for or against one significant argumentative claim made by either English’s “What do Adult Children Owe Their Parents” or de Beauvoir’s Ethics of Ambiguity (note, your essay should exclusively focus in on one of the two authors); and 3) defend your argument against a naysayer.

Ethics and Moral Development Reflect upon ethical dilemmas you may have encountered in an organization you are or have been with or that is currently in the news. Also, familiarize yourself with Kohlberg’s stages of moral development. For your initial post, address the following, supporting your perspectives with scholarly research: Summarize the ethical dilemma you encountered in your organization. Which of Kohlberg’s stages of moral development is represented in your example? Be sure to justify your reasoning for your choice. Do you think that one of the other theories of moral development better describes your example? Why? Postulate the (hypothetical or real) best- and worst-case outcomes of this dilemma as you see them.
1. What is the argument to promote diversity in favor of Affirmative Action (i.e. explain why diversity is important to Universities and how AA helps promote diversity)? Explain how those who are against AA use the practical objection to argue that AA does not actually help minorities. 2. In her defense of abortion, Judith Jarvis Thomson uses a thought experiment called the life support violinist. How does the thought experiment work as an analogical argument that stands in for discussions about abortion? Present one possible objection to it. 3. Stephen Macedo argues for the Civic View on Immigration. What is the civic view and how is it different from what Macedo calls Cosmopolitanism? ****Answer each question in less than 100 words each please *** Thank you!!
Post a draft of your final paper’s abstract, introduction, and conclusion for peer review. Be sure to include the problem you are addressing. Identify any questions or challenges you are facing with the assignment, or mention something new that you have learned. Pose specific questions you would like your peers to address.
800 words You may use the paper to argue in support of one side of an ethical issue. If so, then you should not only find substantial arguments in support of that position, but also substantial arguments against that position. In other words, try to show that your position successfully withstands strong criticism. Alternatively, you might want to explore an ethical issue without taking a firm stance on either side. In that case, also, find substantial arguments on both sides, and analyze their strengths and weaknesses. It may help to ask yourself as you read: What sort of ethical argument is this? Is it consequentialist or nonconsequentialist? Has the author anticipated serious objections to his/her argument? Are the ethical principles assumed or advocated by the author likely to conflict in some situations? Are any significant ethical principles ignored? If the argument depends in part on empirical studies, are they strong ones, or do they ignore important evidence? Is what the author proposes realistic in economic or business terms? (These questions are meant to be suggestive, not mandatory or exhaustive.) Be very careful to avoid plagiarism. You must cite your sources everywhere in your paper where you use their ideas, and not only when you quote them directly but also where you paraphrase their points in your own words. In general, you should only use direct quotes when you find the authors’ wording to be especially effective. But your paraphrasing or summaries of authors’ points should be thorough: it’s not fair to an author to change only a couple of words in a paragraph of his/hers and then imply (by not using direct quotes) that the paragraph is entirely your own prose.
