Unit 2 DB: Ethical Theory
Now that we have learned about the three main branches of ethical theory (consequentialism, non-consequentialism, and virtue ethics), which approach would you want a President of the United States to excel at in his or her own life and work? Why do you think it is more important for a President to live in accordance with this approach to ethics as opposed to the other two?
Read and respond to two classmates’ posts, preferably two students who have argued for a different ethical theory. Let them know why you agree or disagree with them.
