Directions and Assignment Information:
This paper should be a minimum of 1500 words (NOT including reference list/title/header information) and a maximum of 2000 words. Each short critical analysis paper will be graded out of 20 points (see rubric for scoring papers for details on what constitutes an “A” paper).
You are expected to work independently on your paper. You should begin with the case information I have provided as your starting off point (this will help narrow this topic). In addition, I expect that you will utilize AT LEAST two of the articles I have provided, as well as intersect with some of the course material to this point. You do not have to do any external research; however, if you choose to do so, you are limited to TWO other scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources.
Finally, I have provided questions to assist you in getting started with your analysis (after paper structure info). You do not have to focus your analysis on these questions–I have provided them so that those new to philosophy/this topic might have some structured guidance. However, if you choose to do so, explore NO MORE THAN two questions in your paper. Be sure to compare/contrast different ethical theories/perspectives for your analysis.
As always, email ([email protected]) or stop by my office hours with questions.
