Theories of Ethics and Ethical Issues

Choose two of the ethical issues from the list to research and write about. It is recommended that you choose a topic that you are familiar with or that you have thought about previously, if possible. For example, you might choose an issue that either worries you or enrages you, you might choose one that you have worked on, or you might choose one that relates to recent events in your community.

Possible Issues
• Corporate executive compensation
• Corporate contributions to political campaigns
• Affirmative action
• The media and its responsibilities
• Domestic surveillance
• Whistle blowing in government or in a business
• Religion in the workplace
• Pornography
• Consumer tracking
• Ethical problems of gambling
• Progressive taxation rates
• Immigration
• Women’s equality
In your paper, you will apply the ethical theories and perspectives to the issue that you select. You do not have to use all six, but you should apply at least two ethical theories and at least one ethical perspective in your paper. Make sure that you write primarily on ethical topics and concepts; do not get distracted by doing analyses that apply political, economic, religious, or legal perspectives. Describe, compare, and apply the ethical theories and perspectives to the topics. Explain how the theories and perspectives would analyze the issue. What are the ethical issues? Where are there breaches of ethical behavior? How could each theory help us think about what would constitute virtuous or ethical behavior?
