Explain/Define the theory using 2 separate credible sourcesc.Step by step explain how or why the issue you are discussing accepts orrejects the theory you are applying and refer back to the definition to make sure the connection is cleari.Don’t just “label” an issue with a theory nameii.Don’t assume the link/connection is clear. Please make the connection clear even if it seems obvious.iii.Use examples if necessary to further elaborated.Saying something is moral or immoral is NOT applying ethical theory5.The same principles outlined in #4 above should also be used when applying theory in your weekly video and book assignments.6.Video assignments MUST focus on the application of ethical theory NOTdiscussion of the topic from the video (ie: GMO;s, pesticides, etc.). The purpose of the assignment is to apply ethical theories to real-life examples. The “weekly assignment ideas” listed in the course schedule for each assignment are there to give you possible actions from the video to use when applying theory. You are notliterally discussing those points at face-value (ie: do not research GMO’s or rBHT,etc.) but rather you are using the actions and decisions in the video to connect 15
with an ethical theory (these connections can accept/follow or reject ethical theories). Make sure when you apply an ethical theory, it actually is an ethical theory and not just a component of a theory. Ethical theories that can be used includes the following: Hedonism, Desire Theory, Divine Command Theory, Natural Law, Ethical Egoism (Psychological Egoism is NOT an ethical theory), Consequentialism, Kantian Ethics, Social Contract Theory, Ethical Relativism (Ethical Subjectivism and Cultural Relativism) and Emotivism.
