WEEK 7 ASSIGNMENT – ETHICSThis week you probably came across a reading or a video clip that you disagreed with to some extent.Select two readings or one reading and one video clipIn a minimum of 750 words, explain why you disagree with the source/s point of view; feel free (I encourage you) to use the other readings for this week or outside credible academic sources to underscore your pointsNow, try to imagine the possible response/s to your arguments and objections. Explain the response and rebut your opponent in this imaginary debate. In your rebuttal, consider that you may come across many opportunities to disagree with fellow students throughout your Brandman experience. Write your rebuttal with consideration of how you would address such controversies with fellow students in a debate that is not imaginary.Have fun with this assignment!First, ethics refers to well-founded standards of right and wrong that prescribe what humans ought to do and secondly, ethics refers to the study and development of one’s ethical standards (see Issues in Ethics IIE V1 N1 – Fall 1987 and/or click on the hypertext link for a more detailed definition and discussion). Last week we discussed politics and government. It may have occurred to some of you that one of the glaring ethical problems confronted by our nation from its very inception was the problem of slavery and institutionalized racism. It was a problem that had dogged our entire history as a nation and continues to present us with ethical challenges today. While some of us may decide to ignore the large ethical questions confronting our society, others make it the focus of their civic and political activities. Here are some of the broad topics that fall under the concern of ethics (remember that they can be approached from more than one cultural perspective): Human Rights and Justice, Environmental Ethics, Hunger and Poverty, War and Violence, Gender Roles and Morality, Racial and Ethnic Discrimination, Euthanasia, Sustaining and Creating Life. We will not be able to cover all these issues in a short week, but if you think about these broad topics you will find that they have all come up to some extent in the past weeks in this course.This week you will be introduced to a few examples of the vast literature on the subject of ethics. As you ponder some the issues keep in mind that there are Western and non-Western perspectives that should be considered when discussing ethics and ethical behavior. Next week we will be discussing education, and somewhere in the background or foreground, as the case may be, there will undoubtedly be ethical questions to consider. This week, we will address the following topics:Beliefs as a dimension of human identity and cultureDetermining what is right and what is wrongExamining our own moral/religious beliefs and moral conductRelationships between morality, religion, and what is legal
