Case Of Difficult Ethical
Case Of Difficult Ethical Choice A case presents some difficult ethical choice going forward. A choice between at least two preliminary options appears difficult to decide from an ethical point of view. Cases will be assessed according to the following criteria: One page typed (at least 200 words), double-spaced, with MLA citations as appropriate (for example, wherever the writer makes reference to public facts that can be documented or when the writer draws upon case materials published elsewhere). A case presentation should summarize the outlines of a predicament, crossroads, or tough decision where it is difficult to decide upon the best course of action from an ethical point of view. Sometimes this is a choice of action, sometimes it is a choice of policy, and sometimes the choice is being deliberated for individual action, sometimes for collective action. Please note: a difficult ethical choice is different from knowing very well what is ethical but facing an enticing, and clearly unethical, temptation. Cases should reflect some contemporary predicament that presents some possible choice in your own “mature” experience going forward. Agents confronting the choice should be at least your age or older, at a calendar date no older than this week. Show the ethical difficulty by presenting two preliminary options for action and explaining why it appears ethically difficult to choose between them. Each preliminary option should be considered in light of its possible outcome. In cases developed for this course, do not indicate which choice is or should be taken. That will be the subject of an application exercise. So be sure to stop the action at the moment of choice, but prior to any decision or course of action. Case Types: the primary agent in a case may be individual or collective, and the primary choice may involve an act or a policy. Cases involving an individual agent facing a particular action will take story form, describing Family and Work going forward. This is an exercise of public policy case will begin with a title that names a law that is either proposed or on the books. The case narrative will show that there are arguments by contemporary advocates who are for and against the law (at least one quote properly cited for each side, pro-con, and a works cited section.) These quotes will not come from primary source texts that we use for summaries, rather pro-con quotes will come from news sources and websites that represent the voices of contemporary stakeholders in policy debates.
