Week 3

Thursday 12 October → Wednesday 18

 


This week grades will be assigned for online activities.

 

A short video about the online grading process is here. If you have any questions or concerns, please email me or post them on the "Ask the Professor" Blackboard forum. If you are uncertain about something, others in the class probably are too.

 

Our video course work this week will be Chapter 2, Modules 4, 5, 6 & 7. They can be found below. This is one of our longer weeks (actually, the longest, I believe); quite a bit of material will be covered.

Discussion

 

Case Study: Skin and Money

Please watch the case study below.

 

Consider what ethical conflicts and dilemmas arise here. Who is involved, who needs to be taken into consideration? Which facts are important?

 

Next, consider the questions set at the end of the case. How would you respond to them in ethical terms? Be sure to exercise your skills in applying the duty theories, and the ideas of fairness and Kant’s categorical imperative, and rights theory.

 

Finally, on the online discussion board, respond to this question, "Did Banerjee do the right thing by hanging himself in the end?"

 

Justify your thoughts in terms of values. Be sure to exercise your skills in applying the duty theories, and the ideas of fairness and Kant’s categorical imperative, and rights theory.

 

Also, respond to at least two of your classmates
