1. What Is Ethics? People such as Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Teresa use their moral stature to influence entire societies. Though they are not as well known, many of us have encountered people whose moral values influence those around them. Identify one such person in your life and describe a situation in which this person influenced your actions.
2. Your Moral Compass: The text identifies seven moral theories that describe the way people reason and make decisions about moral issues: (1) psychological, (2) agnostic, (3) ethical egoism, (4) divine command, (5) hedonist, (6) authoritarian, and (7) altruistic. Which of these theories or approaches to moral decision making did you use as a child? As an adult, which of them appeals to you? Why?
3. The Thinker’s Guide to Moral Decision Making: It can be difficult to know what the right thing is, and it can be even more difficult actually to do the right thing in a given situation. Think of a moral decision you had to make in the past. How did you decide what to do? Did you make the right decision? Given what you’ve learned about moral reasoning in this chapter, would you change either your approach to that moral dilemma, or your decision? Explain.
4. Bonus: The Ethic of Care: The Ethic of Care asks us to think about the importance of relationships when it comes to our moral judgments, rather than being an impartial moral decision maker. Describe a situation in which a special relationship (parent–child, teacher–student, neighbor–neighbor, etc.) would lead you to treat a family member better than a stranger. What does this make you think about the goal of impartiality?
5. Recognizing Arguments: The text uses the issue of legalizing marijuana to illustrate how to recognize conclusions and reasons in an argument. Think of another public issue that is important to you, such as reinstating the draft or changing the drinking age, and provide reasons for your position on the issue and a conclusion.
6. Evaluating Arguments: Think of a recent argument you’ve heard that takes a position on a local issue. What was the conclusion, and what were the reasons offered to support the conclusion? Was the argument sound? Explain.
7. Understanding Deductive Arguments: In a deductive argument, if the premises (reasons) are assumed to be true, then the conclusion based on those premises must be true. Give an example of a deductive argument from your work or personal life, identifying the premises and the conclusion.
8. Constructing Extended Arguments: Think of a time when you have constructed a longer or extended argument either at work, with your family, or a friend (it doesn’t matter if you actually wrote out the argument or simply engaged in debate). What type of reasons did you offer and where did they come from? Which, if any, of the deductive argument forms that you’ve learned about did you use to construct this argument?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
