Week 7 Discussion Topic 2 Week 7: Assemble and Test Your Personal  Ethics Statement Your goal for the end of this discussion is to have created a personal ethical philosophy and be able to tell your classmates from which philosophies you created it and why the contents are important and meaningful for you. List its precepts. (You will need to do this on the Final Exam.) After you have assembled and posted your personal ethics statement, responded to what others may have said to you and thought about what you have posted to others, then take your statement and use it to work through the famous case of the Ring of Gyges. RESPONSE(s): Professor and Class, Crafting an ethical statement for myself was a little difficult because I didn’t want to make it too long or wordy, but I also didn’t want to make it sound to cheesy; here it is: “Be honest and fair, be courageous and do no harm; do not abuse privileges, share love without judgment, give graciously and often.” ~SO Using My personal ethical statement and after analyzing the Ring of Gyges, I would have left the ring where I found it! I would have been courageous enough to have searched the cave; however, I would not have taken the ring nor worn it to do the evil things and if I had tried to wear it and discovered the invisibility and ability to get away with things, I would have immediately replaced the ring where I found it and never gone back to do any of the things that I could have done. It just isn’t something that I would feel comfortable doing & it wouldn’t align with my ethics.
